Sammie is a glaciologist and climate scientist. Her research interest
focusses on the surface hydrology of Antarctica's ice shelves, and she
works on modelling how and where ice shelves may become vulnerable
to sudden collapse. This is important in determining Antarctica's
contribution to global sea level. She also has interests in Greenland
surface hydrology and snow and melt on Arctic sea ice.

Sammie is a 2020 IASC Cryosphere fellow and also a fellow of the
Software Sustainability Institute. (The International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) is a non-governmental,
international scientific organization. See https://iasc.info/our-work/working-groups/cryosphere/)
She has a strong interest in
science communication and has spoken at Maths Inspiration theatre
shows for teenagers, at the Royal Society and at various festivals,
schools and museums. She is also happy to provide media comments
and has spoken on live radio for Radio 4's today program and
BBC Berkshire.
