Research Interests

I am interested in the scientific and practical aspects of environmental and engineering problems involving ice and permafrost. These include problems in the areas of soil physics, thermodynamics, heat and mass flow, and growth and decay processes that are associated with permafrost, subsea permafrost, seasonally frozen ground, and seasonal snow cover. I am also interested in the improvement of mathematical methods (analytical and numerical modeling) in geology and geophysics.
