Robert Bingham is Head of the Global Change Research Institute. Rob’s research uses a wide array of geophysical, remote sensing and modelling techniques to unravel contemporary glacial change and processes, and to link modern subglacial environments and landforms to deglaciated landscapes. As a member of the GHOST team, he will travel to Antarctica to lead radar data acquisition on Thwaites Glacier to investigate and quantify the sediment, hydrology and subglacial geomorphology, and work with ice-sheet modellers to implement this information into forward projections of ice-sheet behaviour.
