Dr Linden Ashcroft
Lecturer in Climate Science and Science Communication, The University of Melbourne
I grew up in country Victoria on the lands of the Yorta Yorta people, and am a lecturer, climate scientist and science communicator at the University of Melbourne.
I teach undergraduate weather and climate science within the School of Earth Sciences, and postgraduate science communication with the wonderful UnimelbScicomm program.
My research explores past climates of Australia using historical documents and weather observations, so the past can help us prepare for the future.
I am also a regular on the Einstein A Go Go on Melbourne’s 3RRR radio, and am part of the 2019-2020 Science and Technology Australia Superstars of STEM program that aims to smash society’s gender assumptions about scientists and increase the public visibility of women in STEM.
