WRITER, SCIENTIST, CONSULTANT
Stepping into a new path in life, I am pursuing a career as an author. My current projects include both fact and fiction. They build off of my experiences in geology, academia, and traveling the world for research and promotion of international science.
I'm trained as a climate scientist and glacial geologist, specializing in the past history of ice sheets. My research has included the past behavior and history of the Greenland, Laurentide, Cordilleran and Antarctic ice sheets. I also have addressed the recent behavior of glaciers in Alaska and Svalbard.
I provide expert consultation and presentationson the causes and effects of past, present and future climate change. My particular expertise pertains to changes in the cryosphere and their impacts on sea level, regional climate and water resources. Other topics are human-ice sheet interactions.
