Professional Summary: 

My research focuses on the mass balance of the Greenland ice sheet. Particularly, I am interested in how the hundreds of outlet glaciers around the margin of the ice sheet change. These changes are linked to atmosphere and ocean conditions, and present fascinating questions on 1-km and 100-km scales. Most of my work is conducted using observational data from satellites, so I'm familiar with remote sensing and GIS techniques that have a wide range of applications. I also have an interest in broader topics regarding climate science from the local ecosystem level to global circulation level. I particularly enjoy talking to scientists and non-scientists about climate change and the ideas and importance of scientific learning.

I am a PhD candidate in the Earth & Space Sciences department at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA and a member of the Big Ice Research Group in the Polar Science Center at the Applied Physics Lab. I am also affiliated with the Program on Climate Change.
