Fields of interest: 
polar oceanography, polar meteorology, snow and firn evolution, physical oceanography of fjords, community engagement, Greenland coastal change

I am interested in the interactions between different components of the climate system, focusing on the interplay between the atmosphere, ocean, and ice near Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets and tidewater glaciers.  Currently, I am investigating the role of the ocean in the observed changes of many of Greenland and West Antarctica's outlet glaciers.
