I'm Ella. Climate scientist by day, boxer by night.

 

No, seriously.

I'm an atmospheric scientist, working on what's making ice shelves on the Antarctic Peninsula melt. I strongly believe that scientists (especially climate scientists like myself) have a duty to communicate their work. So: I've taken a step into the world of science communication and presenting.

I've always been passionate about the environment, and have been campaigning against climate change for almost fifteen years. I've been interviewed in print, radio and on TV about numerous campaigns, and am a seasoned activist.

I've been boxing since 2012, and compete for Islington Boxing Club. I am also a registered England Boxing level 1 coach, and coach at the women-led boxing gym, Solstar, I co-founded in 2016.

I've got a unique set of skills that you won't find anywhere else.
