Richard Levy is an Associate Professor and Principal Scientist. He is a glacial stratigrapher and paleoclimatologist with expertise in microfossil analysis. His research primarily focuses on the evolution of Earth’s climate system over the past 40 million years in the mid to high southern latitudes.
In the Antarctic Science Platform, Richard will work with numerical climate and ice sheet modellers to integrate paleoenvironmental data with model simulations to improve understanding of the processes that control and drive environmental change, and the sea level rise impacts of ice melt in Antarctica. He is co-leader of ASP Project 1.
Richard is co-leader of the MBIE Endeavour-funded NZ SeaRise research programme.
