Mathilde is a young mathematician and scientist passionate about the applications of Artificial Intelligence in climate science. She has a lifelong ambition to make global communities more sustainable, through building equitable climate resilience. Mathilde began her foray into climate research at the University of Melbourne. There, she worked to understand historic changes in regional drought, whilst completing two undergraduate courses (both with First Class Honours). Mathilde has also worked with Australia's CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology, modelling bushfire risk and working with Pacific Island meteorological services to understand future flood risk. She recently completed her Honours Degree at Monash University, where she studied applied mathematics supported by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. With the John Monash Scholarship, she hopes to complete her Doctor of Philosophy at Oxford University, researching new methods of improving climate modelling with Artificial Intelligence. She looks forward to bringing these important skills back to Australia to support innovative climate science that has a lasting impact for our communities.
