I am a glacial geophysicist with expertise in remote sensing. Specifically, my research aims to unravel the key ice, ocean and atmosphere interactions responsible for controlling the pronounced deterioration of the world’s ice sheets and glaciers since the beginning of the observational era (c. 1960). To do this, I utilise a suite of cutting-edge satellite and airborne geophysical imaging techniques, ocean and atmosphere model outputs and data collected in the field (on ice or by boat).

My current research is supported by The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. At Cambridge, in addition to supporting Part 1A teaching at Jesus College, he contributes to the MPhil in Polar Studies degree programme offered by the Scott Polar Research Institute, and lectures on topics pertaining to the remote sensing of the cryosphere.

I gained my MA (First Class Hons) degree in Geography from University of Aberdeen in 2014 and, following a brief interlude in industry, later obtained my PhD degree in Atmospheric and Environmental Science from the University of Edinburgh in 2018.

I am a Fellow of The Geological Society of London, and have recently published research in a selection of world-leading journals including Science and Geophysical Research Letters, and frequently acts as a reviewer for these journals and more. My work has also recently been cited in several high-profile Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) publications including, most notably, the IPCC’s ‘Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis’ (The Working Group I contribution to the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report).
