Stefanie is a Future of Ice postdoc with an expertise in regional ocean modeling, focusing on Antarctic ice shelves using the ROMS model. She is currently developing a model of Pine Island Glacier ice shelf cavity to investigate ocean-ice shelf interactions, ocean cavity circulation, and offline coupling with an ice shelf model. Before joining Ian Joughin’s team in PSC, Stefanie’s doctorate research involved using a ROMS model of the Ross Sea to investigate the role of tides and mesoscale eddies, particularly on the transport of dissolved iron, a limiting micronutrient, from source locations to the surface mixed layer.

Stefanie was recently elected to serve a three-year term as a Student Representative for The Oceanography Society through 2019.
