Research associate, University of Tasmania

Chen Zhao is a research associate working under the Australian Antarctic Program Partnership at the University of Tasmania. She has experience in the application of computer models to ice sheet modelling and coupled ice sheet-ocean modelling; ice sheet dynamics and basal processes; marine ice sheet instability and groundling line migration. Her current research interests aim to explore the sea level contributions from the Antarctic Ice Sheet in a changing ocean and assess the impact of ocean system on large ice sheets with numerical modelling.
