Role / Position
PhD scientist
Sea Ice,
My tasks on MOSAiC
Sampling the physical properties of snow. We will measure thickness, spatial distribution and microstructural properties of snow.
I am most excited about
Having the opportunity to conduct unprecedented snow measurements in such a remote area over a whole year. We have had to develop a lot of equipment specifically for this expedition and it will be interesting to see the challenges of working on sea ice. I am also excited to experience polar night for the first time
