Research and Professional Interests
My research interests consist of lake ice climate interactions, cryosphere research, climate change, and hydrology. My Master's research is focused on the effect of snow ice on the conductive heat flow through lake ice in temperate regions. My study will incorporate the collection of data through fieldwork, past collected data and computer analyses in order to determine how conductive heat flow affects lake ice formation, thickness, as well as snow cover. Other than my interest in physical geography, I am an artist and enjoy creative writing.
