Background

Research interests

My research uses a combination of geogrpahical information systems (GIS), remote sensing and numerical modelling to better understand how ice masses (on Earth and Mars) respond to climatic changes. Current focus is on:

  • Response of polar ice masses to climatic change
  • Late Amazonian climatic change and glaciation on Mars
  • Integrating new technologies (e.g. UAVs) and computer processing (e.g. Google Earth Engine) into geoscience research
