Research Interests

My 15-year career has largely focused on Arctic climate, cloud and atmosphere processes, and their interactions with the surface, primarily using ground- and aircraft-based observations.

Professional Experience

Field work has been a major element of my career, including work at numerous Arctic field stations, atop the Greenland Ice Sheet, in mountain environments, and aboard icebreakers in the Arctic sea ice. I am a working group chair for the DOE Atmospheric System Research program and sit on the SEARCH Observing Change Panel. I have been an active participant in the DOE Atmospheric Radiation Measurement and Atmospheric System Research Programs since 2002.
