Glaciology - Geophysics - Radar Theory

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Washington, Seattle, who investigates the past, present, and future of the Antarctic Ice Sheet using observational geophsyics. I completed my Ph.D. at Penn State through an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, as a student of Dr. Richard Richard Alley and Dr. Sridhar Anandakrishnan. While my postdoctoral research focuses on satellite remote sensing and modeling, my Ph.D. worked toward better observational methods using airborne and ground-based radar. Through electromagnetic theory, I use radar data to make inferences about the thermal and chemical properties of the ice column, and through an understanding of the physics of ice flow, I use imagery of the internal structure of the Antarctic Ice Sheet to reconstruct the flow history of the system.
