Research Interests

I study abrupt climate change through the lens of science and culture. My research focus areas are Alaska, Greenland, and Antarctica. In Alaska, I work with Indigenous communities to better understand climate change, subsistence activities, and food and water security. In Greenland and Antarctica, I recover ice cores from remote field camps to reconstruct past abrupt climate change. I am actively involved in science communication through film, photography, art, and public speaking, I also pursue climate policy by taking appointments on task forces or environmental policy boards.
