Welcome

The EGG is open to any ECS (Early-Career Scientist) in glaciology or related snow and ice sciences. Our aims are to enhance the cryosphere ECS community (socially and professionally), particularly within the IGS, and to provide additional support to ECS in cryosphere-related fields.

We’re planning social events, workshops, and panel discussions at upcoming meetings (IGS and others). Through holding these events, we are hoping to build a better community for us ECS, where we can exchange ideas and discuss problems, foster career development, and get to know each other and benefit from this network. We also hope that through encouraging the IGS to provide more support for ECS, this support will help ECS with become more involved with and benefit more from the IGS.

Frequently asked questions

  • Am I an ECS?
    We’re happy for anyone self-identifying as early career to get involved. We do want to make sure we’re creating a group for researchers at early stages of their career and therefore working through similar problems, including getting started on publications, learning how to apply for funding, presenting at conferences, and thinking about future career paths. We will likely adapt the IGS definition of early career — being in school or <6 years beyond a degree (with an extra year per child if you took time off to be the primary caregiver) — as we look to include funding opportunities.
  • How to join the EGG?
    Send us an email or meet us at IGS conferences!
  • How can I get involved?
    You have an idea or some skills or that you would like to share with other glacier, snow and ice folks. Contact us ans we will support you.
  • Mailing list and Twitter:
    We will post information about upcoming events and opportunities on Twitter through @igsegg, and if you would like to receive emails about news and upcoming events please sign up here.

    Let us know if you have any comments or ideas for events!

The team

Rebecca Schlegel
EGG Chair, PhD student

Rebecca is a PhD candidate at Swansea University and aims to better understand glacier dynamics using geophysical methods.

Johannes Landmann 
PhD student

Johannes is doing a PhD at ETH Zurich in the group of Daniel Farinotti. He works on finding a good strategy to get near-real time estimates of glacier mass balance in the Swiss Alps. To achieve this, he makes use of an approach that combines modeling with data assimilation of field data as well as remotely sensed observations.

Lauren Vargo
PhD student

Lauren is pursuing a PhD at Victoria University Welling that aims to develop a semi-automated method that revisits historical glacier imagery with photogrammetric Structure from Motion to quantify glacier fluctuations.

Adrien Wehrlé
Master student

Adrien is a master student at the University Grenoble Alpes (France) where he studies climatology and glaciology. His current research is mainly focused on better understanding the dynamics of Greenland outlet glaciers as well as the evolution of the surface conditions across the ice sheet. To this end, he combines in situ measurements with spaceborne observations as well as model simulations and try to go on fieldwork whenever he gets the opportunity!

Doug Brinkerhoff
Assistant Professor (Early Career)

Doug is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Montana, where he works on problems in uncertainty quantification in glacier models, subglacial hydrologic modelling, and computer vision applications in the Cryosphere.

Pierre-Marie Lefeuvre
Researcher (Early-Career)

PiM is a Researcher at the Norwegian Polar Institute and Assistant Professor at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS). After a PhD in subglacial processes, he studied glacier calving as a Postdoc fellow at the University of Oslo.
