Tamara Fletcher is a postdoctoral researcher in palaeoecology and palaeoclimatology, and a founding member of the international research group, PoLAR-FIT.
Tamara's primary research focus is investigating past environments and what they can tell us about climate and ecological processes across grand timescales.
The field work takes place in remote landscapes such as central Queensland, and more recently, Ellesmere Island, in the Canadian High Arctic.
Funding for this work has been provided by National Geographic, the European Commission (MSCA-IF), Endeavour Research Fellowships, The Chinese Academy of Sciences, The Polar Continental Shelf Program, NSF-Polar Systems, and an Australian Postgraduate Award. Results have been featured by national news outlets in Australia, The Conversation, Science News, and early achievements recognised through admission to The University of Queensland, Future Leaders.
