Current Research InterestsGlaciology.
- Ice flow in the vicinity of ice divides.
- Inference of accumulation-rate histories and ice-sheet surface-elevation histories from dated ice cores and stratigraphy detected by radar.
- Evolution of preferred crystal fabric, and its influence on ice-sheet stratigraphy.
- Determination of preferred crystal orientation fabric by measuring sonic velocities in the walls of boreholes in ice sheets.
- by modeling physical processes causing preferred crystal orientations and grain-size evolution.
- Evolution of polar firn, and exchange of firn air with the free atmosphere, for trapping ancient air bubbles.
- development of a Community Firn Model to standardize procedures to estimate ice age/gas age differences.
