Benjamin Wallis



Enrichment Student

Cohort year



Ben is a PhD student in the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science at the University of Leeds, supervised by Anna Hogg and David Hogg. His work is focused on applications of statistics, machine learning and computer vision techniques to Earth observation glaciology. Using these methods with synthetic aperture radar and other satellite datasets he aims to improve measurements of ice velocity and mass balance, informing predictions of sea-level rises and the climate impact of a changing cryosphere.
