I am a PhD student at the Scott Polar Research Institute, interested in the interaction between surface meltwater and the dynamics of the Greenland Ice Sheet. I use self-built unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to examine the impact of surface meltwater at very high spatial and temporal resolutions, as part of the ERC-funded RESPONDER project. I’m also interested in the potential of cloud computing platforms, such as Google Earth Engine, for remote sensing applications.
