Dr Brad Reed

Research Fellow

Department: Geography and Environmental Sciences

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Northumbria University interested in the behaviour of glaciers and ice sheets. I primarily use numerical modelling to study the flow of glaciers and how they respond to external conditions. To do this, I also incorporate satellite data and other data sources into the modelling process for validation and comparison.

I have a background in mathematics, oceanography and glaciology and thus am very interested in how we can use numerical tools and modelling approaches to better understand past and future climate change.
