My main graduate school focus is to bring clarity to non-linear questions in geophysics. Much of the processes on Earth are deeply complex and are impossible to model with linear equations. It is often difficult to find solutions to non-linear equations, so the more complex geophysics questions must be solved computationally. My goal is to further our understanding of non-linear geophysics problems utilizing techniques from computer science and applied mathematics. While I don’t desire to limit myself to only one geophysical framework, my current research focuses on questions from glaciology and cryosphere dynamics. These topics are a subset of fluid dynamics, a sub-genre of geophysics in which I find myself immensely interested and will seek to research further.
