Glacier and ice sheet dynamics including ice-shelf stability; ice/ocean interactions; ice rheology and deformation; ice-core climate history; water percolation in firn; fracture and deformation of cold ice; englacial and subglacial water movement; connections between Earth-ice processes and planetary ice; and applied geophysical methods in ice (seismics, acoustics, borehole logging, radar, etc).
Using field-research experiences as a mechanism to build confidence in and inspire underprivileged young women to explore science as a career; teaching climate science in the field.
