I use and develop numerical models to represent the current state of ice sheets and project their future evolution. During my PhD in Grenoble (France), I worked on developing techniques to improve the representation of ice sheet and glacier basal conditions, using the Finite Element model Elmer/Ice (an add-on package to Elmer, which is a multi-physics FEM suite mainly developed by CSC-IT in Finland ). Now, I use Elmer/Ice to help understanding the physical processes underlying ice shelf bending we observe close to the front of Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica, and leading to small calving events. I also study the potential causes of seasonal variability in ice flow observed at different GPS stations on Ross Ice Shelf.
