My research focuses on the physical processes governing the Earth's polar regions, with an emphasis on ice-ocean-atmosphere interactions and links to global-scale climate change.

  • I work with idealized global climate and sea ice models to study aspects of how sea ice and the climate interact.
  • I study how changes in ocean conditions impact tidewater glaciers and ice shelves, using modeling, remote sensing, and in situ observations.
  • I carry out field work in the Arctic Ocean to better understand the influence of physical changes on the polar ecosystems.
