Research Interests

My research interests are in glaciology and paleoclimatology, and the role of the cryosphere in the Earth System.  Research topics include: the reconstruction of past climate from ice-cores; understanding and measuring polar ice sheet mass balance and ice dynamics; exploring the interaction between the coupled cryosphere-atmosphere-ocean systems; and investigating biogeochemical processes in polar environments.
