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 changes and interacts with the ocean and other climate system components. These changes present fascinating questions on local to continental scales. Remote sensing, GIS, and big data are all an important part of my research and I love field work. I also have an interest in broader topics in climate science. Increasing scientific awareness and literacy are important to me and I enjoy talking to all sorts of people about the fun of science and discovery.
