Born and raised in Devon, Helen is a glaciologist and ice sheet modeller who is working to protect the polar regions.

Helen has conducted fieldwork in both the Arctic and Antarctic, as well as other icy parts of the world. She has a PhD in climate science from UNSW, Sydney, and her thesis focused on Antarctica’s contribution to sea level rise during the Last Interglacial.
