Andrew is an engineer and a member of the Icefin team that will travel to the Thwaites Glacier as part of the MELT Project. Icefin is a specialized underwater robotic vehicle designed to be deployed in the ocean through a narrow hole in the ice shelf. The team will use this remotely operated vehicle to map ocean cavities beneath the ice shelf and to improve understanding of the processes contributing to glacial melt and retreat. Andrew is currently designing instruments for Icefin and will contribute to the vehicles deployment and operations in Antarctica.
