Student research opportunities
I am always looking for motivated students with skills in, or interest and motivation in developing skills in, mathematical glaciology (including coding and remote sensing). I am particularly interested in working with students from minoritized backgrounds. Members of the Glacier Modeling Lab work together to create an academically supportive and anti-racist community. My primary goal as a professor is to help my students succeed through growth in thinking capacity, research aptitude, and personal fulfillment in the UB Glacier Modeling Lab. If a certain research topic interests you, send me an email or drop in to my office to tell me why you’d be a good fit!
These topics are ongoing lines of inquiry, ready to begin on, or both!
- Model — observation investigations of glacier flow
- Formation of moulins
- Crevasse fields
- Firn aquifers
- Formation and life cycle of crevasses on mountain glaciers
- Subsurface meltwater
- Model — glacial geology investigations of glacier history
- Surging glaciers
- Supraglacial streams and canyons
- Englacial fracture network
- Detection of subglacial tills
- And more…
