Research interests

I am interested particularly in how we can better understand the polar atmosphere to improve estimates of melting and future climate change.

This includes understanding how cloud properties in the Antarctic influence the amount of energy received at the ice surface, and therefore control melt. 

My areas of expertise include:

  • Antarctic meteorology and climate change

  • Surface energy balance

  • Cloud microphysics

  • Flow in complex terrain

  • Ice shelf glaciology
