I am investigating the complex role of the cryosphere in the Earth system,
in terms of glacier mass balance as well as glacier dynamics and interactions between them.
This research is directed towards quantifying the effects of climate changes on the
cryosphere and hence on freshwater resources and hazard potential. In doing so,
I follow a double-tracked approach of combining field work and modeling thereby
exploiting their considerable synergy potentials.
My research interests are
- Mass balance of glaciers
- Glacier hydrology
- Glacier response to
- Modeling cryosphere:
glaciers and permafrost
