glaciers, electronics,
bikes and vertical things

About Me


I'm an electronic engineer and glaciologist with a passion for developing radio instrumentation to study processes in the cryosphere, with a focus on ice shelves and alpine glaciers. In 2023, I completed my PhD with University College London and the British Antarctic Survey, where I developed an HF (high-frequency) variant of the ApRES radar to enable radar (SAR) imagery of the base of ice shelves. More broadly, I'm interested in applications of remote and ground-based electronic sensing to glacial hydrology and geophysics. In my spare time, I enjoy mountaineering, cycling and painting.

Hopefully there's something on here to take your interest and do get in touch should you have any questions.
