Current Group Members

At any given time, our group includes some combination of faculty, postdocs, PhD students,  Master's students, post-baccalaureate researchers, undergraduate students, and high school interns working on problem at the forefront of terrestrial and planetary radio glaciology. This includes researchers and students for whom our group is their primary academic home, vistors from other institustions, and Stanford graduate students that are doing a rotation or second project with our group.
