Polar climate scientist - exploring the causes and consequences of sea ice change using observations and models.
I am an Associate Research Scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center Cryospheric Sciences Lab and the University of Maryland. Please check out the links above to learn more about my research interests and activities. Below are a list of active projects I'm most focussed on right now.
NASA's ICESat-2 : Sea ice data product lead (ATL07/10/20/21) and Co-Investigator on Dr. Tilling's Science Team project. I'm working to better understand the data from this new satellite laser altimeter and provide state-of-the-art estimates of the sea ice state (freeboard, thickness, roughness, floe size).
NASA's Operation IceBridge : A member of the Operation IceBridge Project Science Office (PSO). I'm currently leading efforts to produce a final, 10-year, sea ice thickness record.
PolarMERRA : Part of a new initative to help produce a new, polar-focussed, atmospheric reanalysis with colleagues in the Cryospheric Sciences Lab and NASA's Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO).
PRSISE : Contributing to the production of a new sea ice state estimate through the assimilation of remotely sensed data into the CICE sea ice model.
