Biography

Louise Newman oversees the running of the SOOS International Project Office, including coordinating the delivery of SOOS activities and products to stakeholders, facilitating the strategic planning and implementation of SOOS, managing the SOOS Network, and advocating for continued support for the office and SOOS activities. Prior to her current positions, Louise was the Science Officer for the international Past Global Changes (PAGES) program, located in Bern, Switzerland, where she worked to coordinate global paleo research priorities. Additionally, Louise was an honorary research associate at the University of Bern, where she continued her research into Antarctic paleoecology. Throughout her career, Louise has taken on scientific leadership roles and is current a member of the international Building Ocean Partnerships working group, and has served on a number of international committees, including SCAR EBA and the International Paleolimnology Association. Throughout her education, Louise also worked in a number of assistant positions, supporting Antarctic research in both the laboratory and in the field.

Research Themes

Through her various positions and roles, Louise delivers into the UTAS Research Themes of Marine, Antarctic and Maritime; Environment, Resources and Sustainability; and Data, Knowledge and Decisions. The remit of SOOS and IMOS are directly pertinent to enhancing understanding of the marine environment, both in Australia and in Antarctica. All of Louise’s current roles support growth in shared knowledge and capacity development in this Theme. Further, SOOS delivers into and engages directly with policy makers and resource managers through the Antarctic Treaty system and the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources – both of which Louise attends as a SOOS representative. Enhancing data delivery and discovery for all stakeholders is a core component of SOOS, as is standardisation of data management practises – aligned with the international FAIR data principals. Louise works to support the Southern Ocean community in achieving these principals.
