About
Amber Leeson is Senior Lecturer in Environmental Data Science at Lancaster University, where she is Theme Lead for Environment in the Data Science Institute and co-theme lead for ice/water in CEEDS. Her research expertise lies in diagnosing and predicting atmospherically forced changes in ice sheet melting, and in hydrological processes which enhance ice sheet mass loss, using numerical modelling, remote sensing and data science techniques. She currently leads the NERC ‘Meltwater – Ice sheet interactions and the changing climate of Greenland (MII - Greenland)’ project and the ice sheet melting theme in the EPSRC ‘Data Science for the Natural Environment’ project.
