How we study climate change at the poles and what ice sheet change means for New Jersey

Published:

Graciously hosted by Dave Jones, I spoke to over 100 7th graders at the Long Valley Middle School about how the ice sheet are changing, demonstrated glacier flow using Glacier Goo with flow markers in both idealized and realistic landforms, and fielded dozens of questions ranging from “How can we help?” to “How do you go to the bathroom in Antarctica?”. Very successful and hope to be back with Dave Jones and other classes at LVMS in the future!

teaching

Environmental Data Analysis

High School / Undergraduate course, LDEO, Columbia Univ., 2017

In the fall of 2017, I taught a Data Analysis course for recent particpants of the Secondary School Field Research Program (SSFRP) at Columbia University in NYC. Along with SSFRP director Bob Newton, we held weekly after-school classes for up to 20 self-motivated students with interest in extending data and scientific skills acquired throughout the previous summer.

REU 2020

Summer Research Project Mentor, LDEO, Columbia Univ., 2020

In the summer of 2020, LDEO help a virtual NSF Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) program. I had the immense pleasure of mentoring two dynamic and talented undergraduate students - Isaiah Quattlebaum from SUNY-Orange and Justin Sankey from Sarah Lawrence University.
