Research interests

Ice stream dynamics: in particular, the basal dynamics that accommodate ice stream flow and how these are related to sub-glacial sediment characteristics and properties.

Ice fabric properties: the formation of ice crystal fabrics under different dress regimes and how these can be investigated using passive seismics, active seismics and radar.

Ice geophysics: particularly the use of active and passive seismics and radio echo sounding in glacial environments.
