Celebrating Women in Science
International Day of Women and Girls in Science at NTU
To celebrate International Day of Women and Girls in Science, NTU featured the female researchers of the Geodesy Group at Earth Observatory of Singapore on their social media pages. Led by Associate Professor Emma Hill (second from right), the team analyses satellite and GPS data to understand the phenomena caused by climate change such as sea-level rise and natural disasters in South and Southeast Asia. Their research helps communities in these regions live more safely in the face of natural hazards.

Research Focus: Hazards, Risk, and Society
What are the Benefits of Sustainable Palm Oil?
Arguably one of the world’s most versatile vegetable oil, palm oil is widely used in the production of foodstuff, biofuels, soaps, and cosmetics. While it is often pinpointed as one of the causes of deforestation, fires, and haze, palm oil can be sustainable. We talk to Assistant Professor Janice Lee about her recent study on the benefits of sustainable palm oil.

EOS-ASE Seminar Series
Dr Gayatri Indah Marliyani 
Dr Gayatri discusses the challenges of studying active faults in Indonesia and how the Covid-19 pandemic has added complexity to their existing challenges. She lays out some possibilities and adaptation strategies that may help us to overcome the challenges such as limited travel and mobility during data collection, as well as delays to sample processing and analysis.
Professor Andrea Dutton
During the week of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, and in the midst of an ever growing climate crisis, Prof Dutton reflects on where we are as Earth Scientists. She shares her perspective, as a woman in a dominantly male discipline, and as someone who studies climate change and sea-level rise and regularly engages with the public on those issues.
