Andrew Mackintosh

Chief Investigator in Antarctic environmental science, Monash University

Andrew is a Professor and Head of the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment. He is also a Chief Investigator of the ARC Special Research Initiative Securing Antarctica’s Environmental Future.

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.
