Dr. Ala Khazendar
I recently obtained a PhD from the
Université Libre de Bruxelles
in Belgium. There, I worked at the
Glaciology. I am currently a
Wiener-Anspach postdoctoral scholar at the
Institute of Theoretical Geophysics
of the University of Cambridge
My main field of research is Antarctic glaciology.
More specifically, I am interested in:
- Ice shelf/ocean interaction
- Marine ice and its formation in open rifts and bottom crevasses
of Antarctic ice shelves
- The solidification process of a mixture of frazil crystals and ocean
water to form marine ice with distinctive salinity
and stable isotope composition. This is the problem I am currently
investigating at the ITG.
