Postdoctoral Researcher
Sep 2015 – Aug 2018 Dunedin, New Zealand
Developed a new multivariate statistical analysis method for interpreting present-day changes to Antarctica’s ice shelves. This method combined computational models with geospatial-time series data to create statistical fingerprints for ice shelf events, which correctly identified the timing and magnitude of past known events. Model used to forecast next 300 years of ice shelf evolution.
Postdoctoral/Graduate Researcher
