GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANT
Brad’s Ph.D. research objective is to understand how sedimentary basins affect continental ice sheet dynamics. He is specifically interested in how subsurface fluid and geothermal heat flows, as well as geomechanical effects, and feedback to affect how ice sheets evolve over short to long time scales. Brad incorporates surface and airborne geophysical data into complex numerical models to test his research hypotheses, specifically for the East Antarctic Ice Sheet.
