Field Work

I have had the opportunity to participate in four Antarctic field seasons. These include being stationed at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, WAIS Divide Field Camp, ALE Union Glacier Field Camp, and McMurdo Station. The goal of this work is to deploy, maintain, or recover broadband seismic stations throughout East and West Antarctica. I really enjoy the many challenges that working in such remote and harsh conditions provides.
