Polar climate scientist - exploring the causes and consequences of sea ice change using observations and models.

About me

Associate Research Scientist at the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) of the University of Maryland and a member of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Cryospheric Sciences Lab.

Recent focus: Understanding and improving data collected over sea ice by NASA's ICESat-2 mission through responsibilities as data product lead and Science Team co-investigator. Project lead on new initiatives to help define sea ice and land ice altimetry requirements from a future NASA surface topography mission and sea ice mission planning for the upcoming Arctic Radiation-Cloud-Aerosol-Surface Interaction Experiment (ARCSIX).

Research activities: Full (semi-regularly) updated Academic CV available here. Alternatively, scroll the tabs above or check out my Google Scholar (journal papers), GitHub (open source code), and ORCID (a confusing website summarizing research output).

Extra: Strong proponent of Open Science, e.g. providing documented and useable code with paper releases, generating and sharing public data products. See the Data/code tab and GitHub links included in the Papers tab.
