Faezeh M. Nick

Assistant Professor

Faezeh researches cryosphere mass loss, its contribution to sea-level rise, and its potential risk for downstream regions. Topics of particular interest to her include past, present and future behaviour of marine- and lake-terminating glaciers, key drivers of glacier calving, the formation and expansion of proglacial lakes, glacial lake outburst floods, and palaeo records of climate and glacier extent, all with the aim to understand the cryosphere’s response to climate fluctuations.

Her research interests also include pathways to sustainability, particularly by positively impacting the transition to a sustainable society in the remote areas where she travels for work. She is the founding director of a charitable organisation active in south Greenland and Tajikistan.
