We are a group of glaciologists/polar geophysicists interested in understanding the past, present and future changes of ice sheets and glaciers, and their drivers. Current research topics include:

  • Revealing subglacial conditions beneath Antarctic and Greenland Ice Sheets using surface geophysical methods (active-source seismic and gravity anomaly) and remotely sensed data
  • Imaging of subglacial features beneath the former Laurentide Ice Sheet margin in northern US
  • Determining the mass balance and ice thickness of alpine glaciers with the microgravity technique
  • Reconstructing past surface-temperature changes in Antarctica using borehole thermometry and thermal remote sensing
