Personal profile


My research focuses on the interactions between sea ice and ice shelves. I primarly use two glacier models, Elmer/Ice and HiDEM, for these investigatiosn. I still get out to the field when I can, and am currently leading a modeling + field investigation of the stability of the Milne Ice Shelf on Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada. This work is funded by the Trebek Initiative and the Leverhulme Trust. 

I also continue reserach into the drift and deterioration of ice islands. These are simply large, tabular icebergs that break away from ice shelves or floating glacier tongues in the Arctic and Antarctic. I conducted 9 field campaigns for ice island research, but now primarily use remote sensing data and large datasets compiled using satellite imagery. You can have a look at the Canadian Ice Island Drift, Deterioration and Detection (CI2D3) Database if you're interested.
