Jordan Pitt wins Australian Academy of Science Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Scientist Award

MSI congratulates former MSI PhD student Jordan Pitt on being a recipient of the Australian Academy of Science Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Scientist Award.

The award is for Jordan's work in the interaction between sea ice and ocean waves, in order to improve future climate models. 

He said current models of sea ice are not accurate enough to produce convincing projections of Australia’s climate.

“I am deeply honoured to receive this award and very excited to advance my research,” said Dr Pitt.

“I hope to continue the work of previous award winners and Indigenous scientists to inspire others to STEM excellence and to make the STEM pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders well-trodden.”
