Research interests

My current research focuses upon investigating the basal and internal properties of the Greenland and Antarctic Ice Sheets using airborne radio-echo sounding data. This includes identifying regions of basal water, characterising the roughness of the basal interface, and constraining englacial temperature. My research methods incorporate electromagnetic modelling, geostatistics and signal processing. An overall goal of this research is to provide new constraints for thermomechanical ice-sheet models.

My past research focused upon the application of techniques from the physics of disordered systems to animal reflectors. This included investigating mechanisms of polarized light reflectance in silvery fish and mantis shrimp, with a view toward uncovering biomimetic `design’ principles for application in optical devices.
