Broadly, I use geophysical methods such as ground-penetrating radar (GPR), resistivity, and other remote sensing methods, to study the cryosphere (e.g. glaciers and permafrost) and near-surface geology of Earth. As it relates to the cryosphere, I use geophysics and remote sensing to study dynamical processes, thermal properties, and the internal structure of glaciers. I use similar techniques to estimate the depth, extent, and changes in permafrost relative to climate change or other influences (e.g. vegetation cover, topography). In regards to geology, I am interested in applying geophysical methods to studying the existence and origin of sedimentary and glacial deposits as well mapping surficial and bedrock structures. I currently split my time between the University of Maine, University of Washington, and Cold Regions Research & Engineering Lab. My field sites include Alaska, Patagonia, Antarctica, the Pacific Northwest, and New England.
