Research overview

I am a Research Fellow studying englacial and subglacial processes at Khumbu Glacier as part of the EverDrill project. My research generally integrates field observations with remote sensing analyses and numerical modelling to understand the mechanisms governing recent and future mass losses for Himalayan glaciers. Recent work has focused on the energy balance and ablation associated with supraglacial ponds and steep bare-ice facies on debris-covered glaciers, but I have also been involved with studies of glacier hydrology, high-altitude catchment hydrology and meteorology, and multidecadal glacier change around the world.
