Tavi Murray

Tavi Murray is professor of glaciology, head of Swansea's glaciology group, and a deputy Pro Vice Chancellor at Swansea. In 2007 Tavi was awarded the Polar Medal by the Queen for outstanding service to polar research. A world authority in glaciology, Tavi Murray is at the forefront of research that informs the debate on one of the most pressing issues of our time: climate change. She is particularly interested in glacier flow and instability. With her colleagues in the glaciology group, she studies the extent to which glaciers are contributing to rises in global sea level, both now and looking into the future. The group uses a wide variety of techniques including geophysics, numerical modelling and remote sensing. Current field projects span the Arctic, Antarctic and most of the worlds glaciated regions.
