I blend fieldwork with the use of geodetic and remote sensing tools to answer questions about the contribution of land based ice to sea level change. I focus most closely on ice dynamics and topographic changes. I am also interested in landslide, earthquake and volcano hazards and how problems scale both spatially and temporally. I use high performance computing resources to examine topographic changes at a multitude of locations around the planet. I am trying to integrate computing vision techniques into the class room in order to leverage machine learning techniques for geoscientific problems.
