Current graduate students include Sean Mackay, Jennifer Lamp, Andrew Christ and Alistair Hayden. Sean’s PhD research focuses on numerical modeling, micrometeorology, and glacial geology; his work is geared toward quantifying microclimate zonation and glacier response, including the spatial variation in geomorphic processes operating above ancient ice in the Antarctic Dry Valleys.  Jen’s PhD research, focuses on modeling and mapping cold-desert landforms in Antarctica, with an emphasis toward understating climate change on Earth and Mars. Andrew's PhD research focuses on the extent, nature, and age of Quaternary glacial drift deposited by the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) on volcanic islands in McMurdo Sound with impications for the contribution of the WAIS to global sea level rise during deglaciation. Alistair's Masters research involves using DIAL to map the locations of climate-sensitive features and to locate future field sites in Antarctica. In addition to the above, all students collaborate in field research that focuses on understanding and linking global climate change and East Antarctic Ice Sheet history. Fieldwork includes helicopter-assisted camping throughout the Transantarctic Mountains. Recent former graduate students include Dr. Jane Willenbring, Dr. Adam Lewis, Dr. Doug Kowalewski, Dr. Kate Swanger and Christine Harrington.
