I am interested in methodological improvements in glaciology and remote sensing which improve our understanding of future sea level rise.
My research is focused on Antarctic glaciology, particularly ice shelf interactions with ice sheets, oceans and the atmosphere. I am particularly interested in grounding zone processes including dynamic variations in velocity, grounding line migration and flexure of the ice due to ocean tides. Most of my current work relates to improving representation of the grounding line in satellite observations and increasing understanding of ice properties and behaviour in this area. This involves using satellite altimetry (ICESat / Cryosat-2), interferometry (TerraSAR-X) and ground-based field validation with GNSS systems and radar. I have completed five seasons on the ice with the US and NZ Antarctic Programs.
