Professor Bryn Hubbard
Visiting March–April 2020
Bryn, visiting Otago as a William Evans Fellow, will work on recently-collected data sets relating to the three-dimensional structure and temperature field of Antarctic glaciers and ice shelves. He will also chair a workshop session on the three-dimensional structure of ice masses and give a series of academic and public lectures on his recent research on Himalayan glaciers, Antarctica’s Ice Shelves, and the existence and behaviour of valley glaciers on Mars.
Visiting January–April 2020
Matthew is a PhD student at the University of Southampton and British Antarctic Survey working on reconstructing the Antarctic sea ice extent during MIS 5e. While at Otago Matthew will work with Christina Riesselman on measuring biogenic silica content across a glacial cycle.
Visiting October 2019–April 2020
Zhongjin works at the Institute of Geology, Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences. While at Otago Zhongjin will work with James White and Marco Brenna on volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks.

Professor Atle Rotevatn
Visiting August 2017–July 2018
Atle is working with Steven Smith, Virginia Toy, Dave Prior, and others on structural geology and tectonics projects such as: structural controls on fluid flow, deformation band faulting, and structure and evolution of sedimentary basins.
Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Adelaide
Working with Daphne Lee and several students on plant fossils from many sites in New Zealand, their palaeoenvironments and the effects of long term climate change. Over the next few years we will be completing various studies comparing the Miocene and Eocene vegetation and floristics of Australia and New Zealand, as well as describing biogeographically important fossils from a range of plant families.
