I am a research associate in the Snow, Ice, and Permafrost Group at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. My research uses computational modeling informed by remote sensing and grounded in fieldwork to quantify the response of glaciers, water resources, and hazards to climate change in order to inform adaptation and mitigation efforts at local, regional, and global scales. This work has led me to field sites in the Himalayas, Alaska, and Cordillera Blanca.
Outside of academia I love the outdoors and enjoy spending my time running, biking, hiking, and fishing. In 2016, my father wrote a daily blog while he hiked the Appalachian Trail, which showed me the power of sharing one's experiences. It inspired my wife and I to write about our travels and adventures as well.
