Jamie Izzard


I am a PhD Student interested in Glaciology and Remote Sensing. My PhD project, funded by the SENSE CDT, aims to use remote sensing techniques such as feature tracking to learn about the dynamics of mountain glaciers. I am specifically interested in improving measurements of glacier flow speed by utilising a range of different satellites. Prior to starting my PhD in October 2021, I received a Masters by Research in Glaciology, studying the glaciological dynamics of the Bryan Coast in West Antarctica using data from ESA’s Sentinel-1 satellite, as well as a BSc. in Physical Geography, both from Swansea University. I also completed an internship with the Centre for Polar Observation & Modelling (CPOM) in the School of Earth and Environment, where I applied Satellite Altimetry data from ICESat-2 and CryoSat-2 to study sea ice and icebergs. 

Research interests

I am interested in everything associated with Earth Observation and Glaciology: Synthetic Aperture Radar, Glacier Dynamics, GIS,  Satellite Altimetry.
