Michelle Maclennan (she/her) is a PhD student in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder. Her research focuses on ice-atmosphere interactions, in particular the impact of snowfall and extreme precipitation events on the surface mass balance of Thwaites Glacier. Michelle is combining recent observations from automatic weather stations on Thwaites ice shelf with reanalysis datasets to examine the spatial and temporal variability of snowfall and its connection to large-scale atmospheric circulation as part of the TARSAN project.
