I seek to acquire, analyze, and integrate geophysical data into numerical ocean and ice sheet model domains to enable improvements to our understanding of Antarctic land-ice-ocean interaction processes in areas sensitive to rapid inland retreat. Specific observational interests include airborne remote sensing-derived estimations of seafloor bathymetry, ice shelf surface and basal melting, and generation and transport of subglacial meltwater to grounding lines. I am also interested in geological controls on ice sheet stability, especially the impacts of tectonics and geothermal heat flux. I am additionally interested in using data assimilating numerical models to optimize planned data acquisition campaigns.
