I am working on the redevelopment and analysis of the bed of the Greenland Ice Sheet. Of special interest is the topography at ice/land/sea floor boundaries. Using newly acquired data and applying various techniques, including the use of anisotropic interpolators, the project I am involved in endeavours to resolve the terrain around the perimeter of Greenland at high resolution.
My interests lie in the use of various geospatial techniques to analyse spatial and temporal environmental change, particularly in the cryosphere. My work requires the use of remote sensing, GIS and programming on various platforms.
My PhD was completed at the University of Leeds (2009-2013), studying the effect of changing glacier geometry on melt processes over the past century which required field data collection, geospatial analysis and grid based surface energy balance model development. I completed a post-doc in the Swansea Glaciology Group (2013-2014) focusing on using signal processing and remote sensing techniques to assess crevasse distribution and evolution across different tidewater glaciers in Greenland, to help better understand pre-calving glacial dynamics.
