About Jodie Geldard
Jodie recently completed her Master of Research in Polar and Alpine Change at the University of Sheffield and has a Bachelor of Science in Physical Geography and Geology. During her university studies, she conducted fieldwork in Norway, Svalbard, Iceland and Greenland, undertaking research in ice dynamics, geomorphology, geology and hydrology, to name a few fields.
Her keen interest in the Polar Regions began after a 5-week mountaineering expedition to Svalbard in 2011, and she has traveled extensively in the European Arctic ever since. Her passion for conservation has led Jodie to participate in the Clean Up Svalbard campaign to clear rubbish from coastlines around the Norwegian archipelago, as well as volunteer as part of the Trail Team to build hiking paths and manage erosion in southern Iceland.
Outside of the Polar Regions, Jodie enjoys spending time in the hills and countryside around the U.K., exploring on foot or in the saddle on her much-loved childhood horse, Marni.
