Current Research:
I am interested in the dynamics and histories of glaciers and ice sheets over time. This requires understanding the controls on ice flow, including climate changes. I work with data from Greenland and Antarctica, and apply ice-flow models and geophysical inverse methods to address process-based questions at these sites. I am also interested in the history of ice on Mars, in particular the large ice masses at the Martian poles.
