Biographical Statement: After receiving  my master’s degree in 2009,  I have worked as a researcher at the Tbilisi State University, Institute of Geography. My main research focus was studying the mountain glaciers and understanding how glaciers have responded to climate changes. Even though I have already gained some experience in this field I am looking forward to learning  about the modern advances in the field of paleoclimate research at CCI.

Research Area:

 My graduate program will be related to paleoclimate reconstructions from the oldest ice core records collected in the Allan Hills Blue ice area in Antarctica.
