Research 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

Associate Professor, Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences

My current research focus is the application of remote sensing data to studies of volcanic degassing, volcanic eruption clouds, and anthropogenic pollution. Space-borne sensors such as the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on NASA’s Aura satellite now allow us to probe the chemistry of the lower troposphere and measure the
