Recently boosted by winning a prestigious three-year, $389 339 ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award, Dr Whittaker is working to understand how plumes of molten rock drive the movement of continents, and how the internal workings of the planet form the landscapes on the surface.

She presented a talk in San Francisco at the American Geophysical Union last year and has been invited to speak at the European Geophysical Union Annual meeting in Vienna in April.

More information about Dr Whittaker's research can be found here.
