Core research areas: process geomorphology in carbonate terrains, karst hydrogeology, and glaciology

I am broadly interested in how the hydrology of glaciers and ice sheets affect ice motion and hence rates of sea level rise. I am also interested in how interactions between surface water and groundwater affect chemical, physical and biological processes in critical zones developed in carbonate bedrock.

Specific current research interests include understanding:

  • Physical processes responsible for coupling between glacier hydrology and ice motion, with implications for understanding rates of sea level rise.
  • How sea level fluctuations, climate change and formation of new surface water affect groundwater circulation and subsurface chemical weathering in carbonate platforms.
  • How critical zone processes in carbonate landscapes create cave systems and, conversely, how cave systems alter critical zone processes from the non-cave state.
