Sophie Goliber

My name Sophie Goliber and I am a Postdoc at the University of Buffalo. I earned my Ph.D. in geological sciences from the University of Texas at Austin with Dr. Ginny Catania. My thesis focused on understanding the controls on changes at marine-terminating glaciers in Greenland using the recent satellite record. My undergraduate degree was earned at the University at Buffalo in Geology, so I am very excited to be back at my alma mater as a postdoc. At UB, I work on the Ghub science gateway to enable ice sheet scientists to work more collaboratively and efficiently. I also try to understand how marine-terminating glaciers calve ice into the ocean using remote sensing to aid in understanding how best to represent them in ice sheet models. I am also an avid cook, amateur roller derby player, and cat lady.
