Current graduate students include Sean Mackay, Jennifer Lamp, 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, starting in Fall 2009, will focus on modeling and mapping cold-desert landforms in Antarctica, with an emphasis toward understating climate change on Earth and Mars. 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. Click their links to see what they are up to. Recent undergraduate students participating in Antarctic fieldwork include Sarah Burns, Emily Klingler, David Shean, Andrew Knott, Greg Wissink, and Mike Dyonisius.
