research overview

  • I study abrupt climate change through the lens of science and culture. My research focus areas are Alaska, Greenland, and Antarctica. In Alaska, I study the changing landscape and hotspot-methane emissions in permafrost-thaw regions. I work with Indigenous communities in the Yukon River Watershed to better understand how to 'navigate the new Arctic', or in other words, to be prepared for the future ahead. In Greenland and Antarctica, I recover ice cores from remote field camps to reconstruct past climates extending back 100s of thousands of years. I am actively involved in science communication through film, photography, art, and public speaking. I also pursue climate policy by taking appointments on task forces or environmental policy boards.
