Biography

Personal Statement

I am a glaciologist with wide-ranging interests in both contemporary processes and the reconstruction and simulation of former ice masses. Most of my work is focussed on investigating the dynamics of the marine terminating margins of ice sheets, and their potential as agents for past, present and future sea level change. To achieve this I use a range of approaches including remote sensing, numerical modelling and fieldwork.
