Polar climate scientist - exploring the causes and consequences of sea ice change using observations and models.
I’m an Assistance Research Scientist at the University of Maryland and NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). Please explore this website to find out more about my research interests and experiences. Below are a list of current projects I'm actively involved in with colleagues at the GSFC Cryospheric Sciences Lab.
NASA's Operation iceBridge : A member of the Operation IceBridge Project Science Office (PSO) I'm working to provide novel sea ice data products/analysis and support efforts to produce a long-term sea ice thickness product.
NASA's ICESat-2 : A member of the ICESat-2 Project Science Office (PSO) and Co-I on a newly funded Science Team proposal (PI Tilling) 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).
PolarMERRA : Part of a new initative to help produce a new, polar-focussed, atmospheric reanalysis with colleagues in the Cryospheric Sciences Lab and the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO).
PRSISE : Leading efforts to launch a new NASA-supported Polar Sea Ice State Estimate (PRSISE) by assimilating remotely sensed data into the CICE sea ice model.
