I am a snow scientist and glaciologist who uses geophysics and engineering
tools to study the cryosphere. A major
focus of my research involves quantifying the spatial varaibility of the
seasonal snowcover and its effect on remote sensing measurements, snow
hydrology, and snow avalanches.
Recent advances in technology have
resulted in new rapid ground-based snow measurement methods, which
I use to quantify snow properties at high spatial and temporal resolution.
These measurements are used to test and improve snow models and microwave
retrieval algorithms. My interests also include snow slope stability modeling,
snow and ice mechanics, and melt water pathways in both snow and temperate ice.
