Maddie Smith is a Post Doctoral Scholar working with Dr. Bonnie Light (PSC) and Dr. Marika Holland (National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder). Her research combines observational and modeling approaches to improve the representation of sea ice in numerical climate models. She will be participating in the summer leg of the year-long MOSAiC expedition in the Central Arctic Ocean. 

Before joining the Polar Science Center, Maddie received her PhD with Dr. Jim Thomson in Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington on the role of surface waves and turbulence in the autumn Arctic Ocean. She has participated in a number of oceanographic field campaigns, in both the Arctic and Antarctic, including the ONR Sea State and SODA programs, and PIPERS in the Ross Sea. Maddie has a B.A. in Earth & Oceanographic Studies and Environmental Science from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine.
