Carys Patricia Cook is currently working as post-doc at UF studying how Antarctica's ice sheets have responded and contributed to climate change in the geological past, a topic of great relevance considering our limited knowledge of how these fresh water sources will respond to global warming.  She is also interested in communicating about climate change to non-specialists.
