About me

I’m a postdoctoral research scientist in glaciology at the University of Edinburgh, School of Geosciences. My work focuses on understanding the dynamics of ice sheets, such as those presently covering Antarctica and Greenland, with the overarching aim of improving predictions for their future contributions to sea-level rise. I use numerical modelling, remote-sensing observations and geophysical data to improve our understanding of key processes controlling ice-sheet evolution.
