Elise Pendall

AGU member since 1994. Professor, Western Sydney University, Sydney, Australia.

Volunteer experience includes volunteering for the Biogeosciences (B) section since its inception in about 2000. I set up our first website and served as webmaster for approximately three years. Working with Section President Jennifer Harden, I led the establishment of the Sulzman Award. I co-chaired a Town Hall on “Exploring Solutions for a Diverse Science Workforce” at the 2012 AGU Fall Meeting, and my associated survey of B section members showed the influence of mentors in increasing diversity in science.
