3MT 2017: Alexandra Pulwicki

May 25, 2017

SFU's Three Minute Thesis (3MT) finals this year took place on March 27th, 2017 in the Big Data Hub Theatre. Alexandra Pulwicki presented "Tracking Snow on Glaciers". 

Alexandra is an MSc student in the Department of Earth Sciences, with a special focus on glaciology. Her research interests include alpine glaciers, snow distribution and accumulation, mountain metereology, and spatial statistics. Prior to coming to SFU, she received her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and Physics at the University of Calgary.

Her active lifestyle of backcountry and cross-country skiing, hiking, kayaking, cycling, and farming has led to her interest in glaciology. Combined with her passion for the outdoors, Alexandra is now working on a multi-scale investigation of snow accumulation on alpine glaciers under the supervision of  Dr. Gwenn Flowers.

Alexandra is the recipient of the NSERC Canada Graduate Scholarship, Special Graduate Entrance ScholarshipArthur and Ancie Fouks Graduate Entrance Award in Public Service, and University Women's Club of Vancouver Trust Fund Graduate Scholarship in Earth Sciences
