Biographies

Briony Ankor is a PhD Candidate in geospatial sciences at the University of South Australia. Her research is centred around the use of satellite based remote sensing to inform, monitor, and evaluate environmental policy and decision making. Briony received a Jane Gillooly Memorial Award to support her participation in the 2016 Homeward Bound expedition to Antarctica, a leadership program for women in science.

Samantha Grover is a postdoctoral fellow at La Trobe University (VIC). She is a soil scientist with a passion for research that creates real change in society. Her research interests centre around the fluxes of carbon, water, energy and nutrients through the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. Her research has contributed to protection of ecosystems, better greenhouse gas accounting and soil carbon storage in agricultural ecosystems. She also participated in the 2016 Homeward Bound expedition.

Mark Stevens received a doctoral scholarship from the University of Waikato (NZ) where he completed his PhD on Antarctic invertebrates in 2003. He then moved to Massey University where he continued his Antarctic research. In 2008, Mark joined the Terrestrial Invertebrates Section at the South Australian Museum. An important aspect to his work integrates molecular and systematics to understand biodiversity contrasted against climate/biome shifts. He is also an Associate professor at the University of South Australia.
