Welcome!

I am a mathematician and a glaciologist working on the mechanical motion of ice in a broad sense. My research interest spans from the mathematical aspects of ice flow models to the observation of glacial processes using drones. In more details, my research topics are:

  • Existence and uniqueness of solutions for ice flow problems (no more active).
  • Development of numerical methods and mechanical models (no more active).
  • Development of an ice flow model accelerated by deep-learning (since 2021).
  • Simulations of Alpine glacier evolution, and tracking of ice particle trajectories.
  • Paleo ice flow modelling with focus in the European Alps.
  • Remote-sensing of dynamical processes on marine-terminating glaciers using drones.
