I am a COMET Research Fellow in Earth Observation and Geoinformatics. I focus on disseminating COMET Datasets and Services through online portals, and on disaster risk reduction within the UKRI GCRF Urban Disaster Risk Hub (Tomorrow’s Cities).

I was previously a Research Scientist at the University of Arizona, where I worked on glaciers, glacial lakes, and landslide hazards as part of the NASA High Mountain Asia Team.
