Rebecca McCerery

Research Fellow

I am a Physical Geography Postdoctoral Research Fellow within the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences.

My research takes an interdisciplinary approach to address ice flow problems such as glacier surging and fast ice stream flow mechanisms by applying the principles of interface physics, geochemistry, and microbiology to the subglacial environment. I use physical modelling of sediments and biogeochemical analysis to explore sediment-water interactions in subglacial environments.
