Isabella Velicogna

Isabella Velicogna earned an undergraduate degree in Physics and a Ph.D. in Applied Geophysics from the University of Trieste in Italy. She is an assistant professor in the Department of Earth System Science at the University of California Irvine and a senior scientist in Division 32 at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. Her research interests include the use of space-based climate measurements for cryospheric and high latitude regional studies; the study of processes of global change using various remote sensing techniques, as well as lithospheric properties and loading processes on geological timescales; the use of satellite measurements of static and time variable gravity to examine groundwater hydrology, polar ice mass balance, viscoelastic rebound and earth rheology; the observation and monitoring of changes in ice sheets mass balance and high latitude regions in a warming climate and determining the impact on global and regional sea level, using a combination of satellite remote sensing techniques, ground observations and numerical modeling; and the development of methods for joint estimation of, or inversion for, different components of the water cycle, including its atmospheric and cryospheric components.
