Mia began her PhD in August 2015, supervised by Lisa Alexander, Markus Donat and Steven Sherwood. Her PhD followed on from her Honours year at the CCRC, with her research on investigating changes in daily temperature extremes in the past and future for the globe. She is especially interested in the impacts from climate extremes, particularly those related to human health and heat. She's also interested in understanding the sensitivities related to the analysis of climate extremes, such as differences in methodologies and datasets used for analysis. 

 

Mia previously completed a Bachelor of Science at Macquarie University, where she majored in Climate Science after transferring from a Bachelor of Psychology and Health.
