Science Team

Bella Duncan is a research fellow at the Antarctic Research Centre, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Bella's research uses molecular fossils, known as biomarkers, to reconstruct what Antarctica looked like during periods of elevated warmth and atmospheric CO₂ in the geological past. Bella uses the fossilized molecular remnants of plants, algae, archaea, and bacteria to investigate aspects of the climate and environment such as air and sea surface temperatures, vegetation, and the hydrological and carbon cycles.
