Research Interests

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.
