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. I have worked on glacier change projects in Alaska, Arctic Canada, Svalbard, Scandinavia, the lower 48, Greenland and Antarctica. I am interested in using past changes in glaciers and ice sheets in response to climate change to better predict their current and future responses to global warming.
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.
