I'm a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Earth and Climate Sciences and the Climate Change Institute. I am a NASA Earth and Space Sciences dissertation Fellow (NESSF) and was previously an NSF Integrated Graduate and Education Research Traineeship (IGERT) Fellow in the University of Maine's IGERT on Adaptation to Abrupt Climate Change (A2C2). I study the glacial dynamics of outlet and tidewater glaciers and ice streams and the various forcings that affect their flow. My dissertation focuses on ice-ocean interactions at several marine terminating outlet glaciers draining the Greenland ice sheet. I am studying these interactions using icebergs as observed in images collected remotely by satellites. I have a strong interest in the applications and implications of my work and seek to develop computational tools (using open source software) that increase the impact and reach of my work.
