Paul Cutler is the lead program director at the National Science Foundation for the International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration. In collaboration with NERC and NSF colleagues, he developed the call for proposals for ITGC projects, managed the peer-review process that selected ITGC projects, and now works with ITGC participants, planners, science coordinators, and logistics support on the shared goal of substantially improving decadal and longer-term (century-to-multi-century) projections of ice loss and sea-level rise originating from Thwaites Glacier.
