Antarctica is one of the most extreme and unusual environments on Earth. This presentation will explore the lessons we have learned about human psychological health and performance in Antarctica and how we can apply this knowledge to a range of other environments including space, and our current experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Professor Norris is a psychological scientist and clinical psychologist who works across academic, research and clinical practice settings. Her research interests include adaptation and resilience in both extreme (e.g. Antarctica, space and FIFO) and more normative (e.g. academic, life events) environments. She develops new and innovative ways to provide psychological support for individuals in remote, rural, maritime and extreme environments.
She was awarded her PhD in 2010 by the University of Tasmania. She is a member of the Australian Psychological Society and of the Scientific Committee of Antarctic Research (SCAR) Humanities and Social Sciences Expert Group.
