Katie's PhD research is investigating the internal structure and subsurface hydrology of a high-elevation debris-covered glacier (Khumbu Glacier, Nepal), through instrumented boreholes and fluorescent dye tracing experiments. She has had four field seasons on Khumbu with the EverDrill research project and participated in an additional trip to the region as part of the "Walk the Talk" outreach and conference event. During her PhD, she has also carried out fieldwork in Norway, studying ice and firn density using an optical televiewer.
