Alum | Earth and Space Sciences

I am currently (2019) an Assistant Professor at the University of Buffalo Department of Geology. I use proceess-scale ice-sheet models, and incorporate remote sensing data into those models. 

I am an alum of the PCC / UW Dept. of Earth & Space Sciences (geology). For my thesis, I studied how meltwater interacted with the flow of ice in Greenland. I did a postdoc at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in the Washington DC area where I worked on fast-flowing glaciers in Greenland.
