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.

Recent publications:
Supraglacial lake drainage at a fast-flowing Greenlandic outlet glacier
High-accuracy UAV photogrammetry of ice sheet dynamics with no ground control
Glacier surges in the north-west West Kunlun Shan inferred from 1972 to 2017 Landsat imagery
Glacier characteristics and retreat between 1991 and 2014 in the Ladakh Range, Jammu and Kashmir
