Research Interests

I’m interested in ice shelves - their internal dynamics, and the external oceanic and climatic factors that affect their behavior and stability.  My current research is centered on the Getz Ice Shelf in the Amundsen Sea Sector of West Antarctica and its response to contact with warm Circumpolar Deep Water.  My research also extends to implications for ice shelves along the entire Antarctic margin.
