My research interests are in reconstructing the dynamics of past glaciers and ice sheets through the tools of glacial geomorphology and Quaternary geology. In particular, I am interested in the deglaciation dynamics of the North American Ice Sheet Complex and the linkages to global climate during the Late Glacial. I use both remote sensing (mapping from satellite imagery and digital elevation models) and field based methods. To support my studies with quantitative dating, I have been using cosmogenic exposure dating and optically stimulated luminescence. Geographically, my research focuses on North America but I have also published studies from Europe, Siberia and Antarctica.
