I am a glaciologist working on the mass balance of the Greenland Ice Sheet. I use a combination of field measurements, remotely-sensed data and computer models to explore the vulnerability of the Greenland Ice Sheet to projected climate change. I have particular interests in the manipulation and analysis of large, multi-dimensional datasets.

Currently I am based in the Bristol Glaciology Centre at the University of Bristol, where I am employed on BLACK and BLOOM, a NERC-funded project which aims to unravel the variations in the albedo of the Greenland Ice Sheet as a result of interactions between microbes and particulates.

I have also developed GeoRaster, a Python package for working with geographic rasters. Take a look at the blog post, documentation or GitHub repository for more details.
