Current activities

Currently studying the role of the atmosphere on Arctic sea ice variability from observations made during the  Norwegian young sea ICE (N-ICE2015) expedition.

Areas of interest and expertise

  • Field-based atmospheric and geophysical observations in polar regions
  • Precipitation in polar regions
  • Synoptic climatology (ie. classifying synoptic weather patterns into distinct regimes and relating those patterns to climate parameters such as precipitation or temperature)
  • Large-scale atmospheric circulation patterns in polar regions (eg. annular modes, NAO, ENSO)
  • Rayleigh modeling of stable isotopes in snow
  • Boundary-layer dynamics in polar regions
