I am postgraduate researcher within Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (CPOM) at ICAS and my research study involves isolationg the ice dynmaical imbalance in both Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. I will mainly work with obseravtions from satellite altimetry missions such as CryoSat-2, ICESat-2 and the like, with the aim of better quantifying and tracking changes in glacial dynamics under a changing climate. This would also improve future projections of sea-level rise.
