Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

The goal of my research is to better understand the physical processes that govern the dynamics of ice sheets and glaciers, and to improve the representation of these processes in large-scale ice sheet models. The ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica together hold the equivalent of 60 m of sea level increase, and understanding their dynamics is essential for projections of future sea level rise. However, many of the processes governing ice sheet dynamics are insufficiently resolved in large-scale ice sheet models. My research projects focus on identifying the main drivers of ice sheet change and deriving parametrizations of these processes suitable for continental-scale ice sheet models.
