Anche Louw, Stellenbosch University

Anche Louw is the science communicator for the Antarctic Legacy of South Africa (ALSA). Her focus is mainly, but not only, on promoting South Africa’s involvement in the Antarctic and sub-Antarctic regions by communicating not only the science being conducted in these regions but also more about the humans behind the science. She overwintered on the sub-Antarctic Marion Island, to do the fieldwork for her Master’s degree in Botany, therefore she has sound understanding regarding the humans behind the science in the Antarctic. She is interested in new and effective ways of communicating Antarctic science.
