In the summer of 2018, Helen spent two months on an icebreaker close to the North Pole, one of forty researchers on a huge expedition to study Arctic weather. In this talk, she’ll discuss what she found, why it matters, and the future of the Arctic region. Helen is a physicist and oceanographer, and is a popular face on BBC2 and BBC4, presenting science documentaries on a wide range of topics.
Helen is a physicist and oceanographer based at University College London. She has considerable enthusiasm for the physics of the everyday world, and will jump on any excuse to share that enthusiasm. She’s also a columnist for the Wall Street Journal, and her first book, Storm in a Teacup was published in 2016.
