Penelope is a data scientist at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) with a background in Glaciology. She graduated from Lancaster University with a first-class bachelor degree in Physical Geography in 2012, before undertaking an MSc (by research) examining geothermal controls on ice flow at a glacier in Iceland. Following this, she pursued a PhD in ice-ocean interactions at tidewater glaciers in Svalbard at the University of Edinburgh and the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS).
After graduating in 2018, she continued developing her skills in photogrammetry and programming as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of York, and then moved to Asiaq Greenland Survey in Nuuk to take up a position as a remote sensing specialist. During this time, she was involved in various ESA projects, including the Glaciers CCI (Climate Change Initiative) Option 6 ice-marginal lake project and CCI+ Ice Sheets Greenland. Since moving to GEUS, Penelope works closely with the PROMICE and GC-NET monitoring programmes over the Greenland Ice Sheet.
