Richard Selwyn Jones

Research Fellow, Monash University

Richard's work seeks to better understand the response of polar ice sheets, and corresponding sea level, to a changing climate. His research primarily focuses on the behaviour of ice sheets in the geological past, using a combination of geochemistry and computer modelling.

Richard is currently a DECRA Research Fellow at Monash University (Australia), and a chief investigator of the Australian Special Research Initiative 'Securing Antarctica's Environmental Future'.
