Alex is a Research Scientist in JPL’s Sea Level And Ice Group. He studies the Earth's cryosphere (frozen Earth) with a particular focus on glaciers and ice sheets and their impacts on sea level rise and water resources. He is most interested in how glaciers respond to natural and human induced forcing and the implications for our future. Alex is a member of NASA's ICESat-2, NISAR, GRACE, Surface Topography and Vegetation, Surface Deformation and Change, and Sea Level Change Science Teams. He is also involved with many novel initiatives to measure ice on Earth, and elsewhere, including the use of snake-like robots (EELS) to look for life under Enceladus’ icy shell. Alex is also PI of the ITS_LIVE NASA MEaSUREs initiative.
