Julie Wee, PhD student
I am a physical geographer with a research interest focusing on the understanding of processes in high mountain and periglacial environments. The types of geomorphological system that I investigate in the scope of my research are Little Ice Age glacier forefields in alpine permafrost environments, in which glaciers and frozen sediments have interacted throughout the Holocene. My research aims to understand the thermo-mechanical processes contributing to surface changes, such as ice melt-induced subsidence or thawing of frozen ground, through a multi-method approach. This includes the analysis of long-term in-situ geodetic and ground surface temperature monitoring surveys in combination with geophysical surveys.
