I study past and current climate change in Antarctica, Patagonia and Alaska. With the aid of ground-penetrating radar, other geophysical methods and a range of paleoclimate proxies, we can better understand how glaciers are reacting to changes in the atmosphere and oceans. Ultimately, with this information we can better predict future changes in the climate and resulting impacts on our planet and civilization.
Additionally, I have worked several years as a conservationist in Patagonia and Costa Rica with Round River Conservation Studies. My interests also include the connections between the cryosphere and biosphere as they are intricately linked around the world. Especially so in fast-changing ecosystems such as the Southern Patagonian Icefield.
