I am a sea ice remote sensing researcher, specialized in Polarimetric SAR. I have strong working experience with surface-borne, air-borne and satellite-borne SAR datasets for a wide variety of Cryosphere applications including snow, sea ice, glaciers and ice shelves. In addition, I have a strong early-career publication experience, which I can utilize to assist upcoming budding researchers in the field of remote sensing of Cryosphere. I am also well-networked with various research career forums in the field of remote sensing and GIS. 
Please feel free to contact me anytime for mentoring related to assistance with Cryosphere science, technical writing and career development
