Professional experience 

2015-     Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University / Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Alberta

2013-2014 Postdoctoral Research Associate, Department of Geography, Durham University

2007-2012 PhD candidate / Teaching assistant, Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University


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.
