Research Interests
I'm interested in understanding past magnitudes and rates of change of polar climate and ice sheets. In particular, I have focused on the last glacial-interglacial transition, a time of large, abrupt warming and extensive ice-sheet retreat.
Personal Statement
My PhD research seeks to understand the magnitude and rate of change of polar climate and ice sheets during the last glacial-interglacial transition, a time of large, abrupt warming and extensive ice-sheet retreat. Specifically, my work explores the ways in which the network of polar ice cores can be leveraged to learn about climate and ice-sheet changes. My early work focused on Greenland climate and using a novel technique in paleoclimate studies: the ensemble Kalman filter, a data assimilation method. My current focus is on Antarctic Ice Sheet ice-surface elevation change, particularly in West Antarctica. Along with research, I emphasize outreach and collaboration. For over ten years I've been involved in Inspiring Girls Expeditions, a team-oriented organization that seeks to inspire female-identifying high school-age youth by bringing them into the field with female-identifying professional scientists, mountaineers, and artists.
