I am a geophysicist spending most of my time studying the physical mechanisms that allow glaciers and ice sheets to flow fast  (100s to 1000s of meters per year). Additionally, I maintain interest in the more traditional use of seismic methods to study the earth's interior, with a focus on how such information (estimates of heat flow, crustal and sedimentary structure) can be used to explore tectonic influences on the flow of ice sheets and glaciers.
