Brent Goehring is an assistant professor at Tulane University in New Orleans. His research interests include cosmogenic nulcides and surface exposure dating, glacial geology and geomorphology, paleoclimatology, and neotectonics.

Goehring is a lead Principal Investigator on the GHC project. By sampling bedrock beneath the ice sheet, he and his team will identify if and when the Thwaites Glacier retreated in the past, how it recovered, and how it is currently responding to environmental conditions.
