Phillip Law Lecture: Observing life on the edge

Since 2002, the Phillip Law Lecture has given noted academics, scientists and leaders the opportunity to give a public lecture on an Antarctic theme.

In 2022 Antarctic ecologist, writer and science communicator, Dr Dana M. Bergstrom, the 2021 Eureka Prize winner for Leadership in Innovation and Science, explores both personal and scientific lessons learnt from almost 40 years of conducting science on subantarctic islands and Antarctic ice-free areas. Dana first travelled south to Macquarie Island as an energetic 21 year old, on board the MV Nella Dan, and the southern realm has captured her heart and mind ever since.
