Personal profile

Research Focus

UKRI funded QUADRAT DTP PhD student researching glacial drainage systems in a contemporary glacial landscape, currently experiencing rapid ice-margin retreat. 

Research Statement

The interaction between water and ice is critical for ice motion. Improving our understanding of meltwater processes and drainage system evolution is crucial in predicting how glaciers and ice sheets will respond to increased meltwater supply in the future as the climate warms. This research aims to produce a time-series of geomorphology maps depicting the annual and seasonal changes at Breiðamerkurjökull and associated foreland, SE Iceland. Repeat geophysical surveys will be carried out to investigate changes in the foreland subsurface and glacial drainage system near the ice-margin. The outputs can then be interpreted along with historical data to develop a holistic understanding of the drainage system and how it has evolved over time while examining what processes dominate during this evolution.
