Jasmine Hansen

Research Interests

Jasmine is a third year PhD student with CIRES Fellow Michael Willis working in the polar regions on the interactions between ice mass changes and the underlying crust and mantle. She utilizes digital elevation model time-series data, derived from optical remote sensing satellites, combined with ground and satellite geophysical methods such as GPS, InSAR and GRACE. 

As well as using remotely sensed data she has spent the last few summer field seasons working in the arctic in Alaska and Greenland on a variety of different projects. Notably she has worked on catastrophic glacier collapse deposits in the Wrangell St. Elias National Park, Alaska, and on iceberg sediment sampling in the Godthab Fjord system in SW Greenland.

Jasmine is funded by a CIRES Graduate Student Award and by a Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology (FINESST) award.
