Dr Weilin Yang is a glaciologist who obtained her PhD at the College of Urban and Environmental Sciences, Peking University in January 2023 (supervised by Prof Gengnian Liu). During her PhD research, she has focused on modelling and analysing the long-term evolution of paleoglaciers and their climatic driving mechanisms, using a combination of numerical modelling, geochronology (10Be surface exposure dating), glacial geomorphology mapping, and GIS/remote sensing technologies.

Weilin is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Earth Atmosphere and Environment, Monash University. She will work with Prof Andrew Mackintosh to project global glacier mass changes using ice flow models. This work will improve our understanding of glacial sea level changes and water resources.

“The Antarctica’s environment is closely related to the future of the Earth.”
