Research Interests

My reserach interests are several important topics of Glaciology:

  • glacier-climate interaction, and long-term reconstructions of glacier variations
  • ice dynamics (rheology, basal processes)
  • glacier thermodynamics
  • dynamics of the Greenland ice sheet
  • deep borehole geophysics in glaciers and ice sheets
  • glacier calving
  • stability of hanging glaciers


  • Physics of Glaciers (1/3)
  • Quantification and Modelling of the Cryosphere (1/3)
  • Field course glaciology (1/4)
