Jennifer Cooper


This presentation will broadly cover the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on students and early career researchers (ECRs) in the Antarctic and Astronomical fields over the past 1.5 years. I will highlight the obstacles many have faced such as graduation/research delays, as well as some new policies that have been introduced that improve access and collaboration. Finally, I will briefly discuss a Nature article published in July 2021 on the wider impact to Polar Researchers.
