I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Snow and Ice Data Center and Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado - Boulder

I received my PhD in Earth & Space Sciences from the University of Washington, where I worked in the Polar Science Center.

My research focuses on characterizing and understanding large ice sheet behavior, examining both the Greenland and Antarctic Ice Sheets. I use a wide range of data to determine how the fast-flowing ice around the margins of the ice sheets change. These changes are linked to atmosphere and ocean conditions, and present fascinating questions on 1-m to 100-km scales. Remote sensing, GIS, and big data are all an important part of my research. I also have an interest in broader topics in climate science. Increasing scientific awareness and literacy are important to me and I love talking to all sorts of people about the fun of science.
