I am a geophysicist who studies the near-surface hydrology of ice sheets and glaciers and the role that this
system plays in their mass balance and stability in a warming world. My primary tool is airborne ice penetrating
radar, and much of my work focuses on combining radar scattering models, field observations, and geophysical inverse methods to
link physical conditions in the ice sheet to their expression in radar data.
This approach lets me observe shallow water processes from the kilometer to ice-sheet scales over decades, illuminating
the influence of climate on near-surface hydrology and the role of this system in modulating water and heat exchange
between the glacier surface and bed.
I also use many of these terrestrial observations as
analogs to study near-surface cryo-hydrologic processes on icy satellites such as Europa.
I am currently a Hess Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Geosciences at Princeton University.
