Assistant Professor, Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences

I am primarily interested in understanding self-organizing hydrological systems in glaciers and ice sheets, as well as in carbonate aquifers.  My research methodologies bridge the fields of geomorphology, physical hydrology and aqueous geochemistry.

Glacier Hydrology

Ice dynamic processes currently account for > 50% of Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) mass loss and sea level rise of 0.75 mm a-1, but this . . .
