My current research work is directed at understanding:\

• the magnitude of sediment fluxes from surfaces that have been disturbed by permafrost change at various scales
• subsurface water movement and pathways in permafrost terrain
• hydrological and geomorphic controls over permafrost disturbance
• precision mapping of landscape processes with UAV imaging
• the chemical evolution of the lakes in the region
• the application of hydrological modelling to watershed, sedimentary and geotechnical processes.

Polar Science Center

206-616-9030 Applied Physics Lab Seattle Washington 98105 United States Principal Scientist

Her research is field-based, largely empirical, and focuses on using quantitative data on individual movements, foraging behavior, and life history of Arctic top predators to understand population dynamics, uniting aspects of behavioral, population, and evolutionary ecology. She is particularly interested in linking individual performance to an animal’s selection for habitat resources and predicting how these relationships will be impacted by climate change. Her questions have been primarily directed at the ecology and management of Arctic marine mammals, specifically cetaceans and polar bears around Greenland. Her interests also include conservation and wildlife management, scaling questions in ecology, and the application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to spatial data.

In Alaska, analysis of microstructures observed in thin section of modern and ancient glacial sediments, used as a tool to understand subglacial and sediment flow processes. Additional research has focused on the Quaternary extent and chronology of the Bering Glacier. Prior work on the microstructures of sediment flow deposits was conducted at the Matanuska Glacier.
