About

I am a research scientist and educator specialising in glaciology, satellite remote sensing and applied geophysics. My research focuses on identifying and investigating the hazards associated with glaciers, ice sheets and snowpacks in a changing climate. Particularly in developing and adapting geophysical approaches to allow the prediction of hazards in the natural environments, and the assessment of risk to society on a global and local scale.
