- Education and Outreach
- Both Polar Regions
I am primarily a remote sensing specialist with an academic background in the natural sciences, especially physics. I teach physics at undergraduate level, and also remote sensing, GIS, statistics and a bit of biogeography to geography undergraduates and graduate students. My research is fundamentally concerned with monitoring environmental processes at high latitudes. Mostly it has been in the Arctic (especially Svalbard and northern Russia) but recently I have begun some Antarctic collaborations too. I am increasingly interested in outreach activities.
- Mentor Panels
These panels are held at major international conferences and are coordinated by
APECS members. Participation involves a 2-3 hour commitment on the day
of the panel meeting.
- Career Development Workshop Sessions
Helping in the coordination and facilitation of sessions at major conferences
- One-on-One Mentoring
Email correspondence with APECS members regarding career advice (including
alternative careers in polar/cryospheric issues), research skills, data
management and occasional research-specific discussions/questions.
- Participation in live online discussions
This will be advertised to all APECS members and will be facilitated by an
APECS Council or Executive Committee Member. Transcripts will be
posted online for future reference.
