Research overview

Mass loss from Greenlandic and Antarctic ice sheets are predicted to be the dominant contribution to global sea level rise in coming years. Supraglacial lakes and channels are thought to play a significant role in ice sheet mass balance by causing the speed-up of grounded ice and weakening, floating ice shelves to the point of collapse. My research focuses on assessing supra-glacial melt in Antarctica and Greenland. I utilise optical satellite imagery to map out water features on the surface of both ice sheets. 

Profile

I'm a PhD student in LEC supervised by Amber Leeson, Mal McMillan and Ce Zhang. I'm interested in supraglacial lakes in Antarctica and Greenland and the methods used for mapping them.
