This topic is where you can introduce yourself to the other members of the Cryosphere Working Group.
Feel free to put as much information as you like, but it might be good to have a brief introduction to your background, where you are now, specific areas of interest you might have, and on what you are interested in collaborating in the future.
Hi everyone! I’ll start by introducing myself - I’m Kelsey and your ACCESS-NRI liaison for the Cryosphere Working Group. I’m the Associate Director for Release Management at ACCESS-NRI and along with a fantastic team, look after the release processes and training for the ACCESS software, data and tools.
My journey started in geodynamics and back when I was a researcher, I’d often be found around a large tank of corn syrup scheming up ways to model subduction and mantle plume processes in the lab. In 2015, I stepped away from the sticky syrup work and joined NCI where I worked for many years managing the national reference datasets. I’ve really enjoyed working in the research infrastructure space and look forward to supporting the Cryosphere Working Group and the broader ACCESS community!
Hello! Thank you for creating this working group. I’m remiss in not being able to attend last week’s meeting. So I thought I would introduce myself here. I’m a part-time PhD student at UTas under the supervision of Alex Fraser. My research interest is in modelling Antarctic land fast ice as primary determinant of more accurately modelling dense shelf water formation via coastal ocean polynyas (especially in East Antarctica). Presently working with CICE6 in standalone mode and looking at implementing grounded icebergs to this configuration in the coming weeks/months. In my full-time job my interest is focused in the undersea acoustic environment and providing operational advice to people working/living therein.
