From 2009–2012 Dr Gergis led the Australian Research Council Linkage funded South-Eastern Australian Recent Climate History (SEARCH) project; a landmark initiative, spanning the sciences and the humanities to reconstruct the region’s climate variability from first European settlement in 1788.  In April 2018, she published 'Sunburnt Country: The future and history of climate change in Australia' which presented much of SEARCH’s research.  Currently working at ANU, she is also the lead author of the IPCC’s 6th assessment report.

Joelle has collaborated with us to present our exhibition 'Water, Soil & Life' - a broad ranging group show of landscape paintings that forms part of ClimArte's 2019 Art+Climate=Change program.  Joelle selected several works in the exhibition to comment on from a climate science perspective.  To browse the catalogue and read Joelle's comments, click here.
