Research overview

Greenland Ice Sheet hydrology


Research Interests

Subglacial lakes (lakes found beneath glaciers or ice sheets) are a crucial component of the hydrological system in Antarctica; they have been associated with ice stream flow and local accelerations, driven by eposodic drainage events. Despite the identification of over 400 subglacial lakes in Antarctica, only 4 lakes have been found in Greenland so far. My PhD research seeks to detect signatures of active subglacial lakes beneath the Greenland Ice Sheet and assess their impact on ice sheet dynamics.
