Personal profile


My research in polar glaciology and oceanography focuses on the simulation and evaluation of present-day and future changes of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and possible contributions to sea level rise. My work includes the combined use of observations and computer models to understand the flow of glaciers in Antarctica, and the complex interactions and feedbacks between the ice and surrounding ocean.
