Principal investigator for Helmholtz Postdoc Project PD-201 "The dynamics of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet during the Cenozoic".

Research interests

I combine ice-proximal sedimentologic, bathymetric, and subbottom-acoustic/seismic data from formerly glaciated West Antarctic continental shelves in order to perform detailed ice-sheet reconstructions, and refine knowledge about basal processes at the former ice/bed interface | More information about my current Helmholtz Postdoc project "The dynamics of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet during the Cenozoic" (2015 - 2018) can be found here: www.awi.de/en/science/geosciences/marine-geology/main-research-focus/palaeo-ice-sheet-dynamics/waic-klages-en.html
