Andrew Mackintosh

Professor & Head, School of Earth Atmosphere and Environment; expert on glaciers and ice sheets, Monash University

Andrew is Head of the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment. He is known for his research on the large-scale interactions between glaciers, ice sheets and the climate system. He has worked on the Antarctic Ice Sheet and New Zealand glaciers, as well as the Greenland Ice Sheet and glaciers in Iceland and South America. His work has led to new understanding of glacier response to anthropogenic and natural climate variability, as well as providing new insights into the physical mechanisms that are causing rapid and potentially irreversible changes in ice sheets today.
