Chloe's honours project looks at determining the origin of particular sediments in an interglacial sequence from the Neoproterozoic.
"In my Undergraduate I decided on a major in Geology but also took subjects in Biology, Zoology and breadth in Anthropology. At present I am completing an Honours in Earth Sciences (Geology) focussing on sedimentary geology. My project looks at determining the origin of particular sediments in an interglacial sequence from the Neoproterozoic.
The thing that I love about science is the problem solving and endless possibilities. It makes me really excited about my work. I had some fabulous science teachers in high school who were really passionate about what they taught, and were successful at transferring their passion and enthusiasm to me, which is why I ended up pursuing it.
Field work is by far a stand out for me, both in my Undergraduate course and my Honours. My geology field trips have always been fun and challenging and have proven to be a great environment in which to bond with my fellow students, demonstrators and professors. Something a little out of the ordinary that I have enjoyed was volunteering to help out on the Melbourne Museum Dinosaur Dig."
