(Biography) I started the PhD program at Carleton University in the fall of 2013 and am excited to be pursuing research on ice islands of the Canadian Arctic - most specifically those originating from the floating glacial tongue of the Petermann Glacier/Ice Shelf of northwestern Greenland. I first conducted ice island field work from the CCGS Amundsen with ArcticNet's Annual Science Cruise during the fall of 2011 as part of my MSc degree. I am interested in the processes of ice island drift and deterioration and my research combines empirical, modeling and remote-sensing methods of analysis.
