Resarch
I use remote sensing and field data to investigate surface hydrology on ice shelves and sea ice. In particular, I am interested in analysing the formation of surface lakes/ponds on and around the Antarctic Ice Sheet, and assessing the implications of their formation for ice-sheet stability. As temperatures rise, it is important that we better understand these features and processes in order to predict Antarctica’s response to climate change.
