Amelia Pearson

I love exploring, learning, and I am obsessed with the science of nature. These passions led me to study a Bachelor of Science Advanced - Global Challenges (Honours) at Monash University, where I majored in ecology and conservation biology. Alongside this, I have learnt an unusual amount about carpet as a software trainer in the flooring industry, and enjoy sharing my knowledge as a school tutor. I am an environmentalist at heart with a keen interest in the impact of plastics, which has taken me from Melbourne’s urban streams to the green chemistry labs of Boston. I believe that by understanding nature we will be in better stead to preserve it. I am excited by innovation and creativity, and am inspired by the knowledge of others. Science communication marries my love of science and people, which is why I decided to run away and join the Questacon Science Circus.
