Claire Yung

PhD Candidate

I'm a PhD student studying ice-ocean interactions near Antarctica and their implementation in ocean models.

I completed a Bachelor of Philosophy at the ANU in 2021, where my Honours project investigated topographic hotspots of upwelling in the Southern Ocean and their physical mechanisms. I then spent time at the University of Sydney researching eddy contributions to global ocean heat transport. I started my PhD in August 2022.
