Dr Ryan Wilson is a Lecturer in Physical Geography in the Department of Biological and Geographical Sciences, University of Huddersfield, UK. His research activities are centred on the monitoring of the cryosphere using GIS and remote sensing datasets with the aim of achieving a better understanding of past, present and future change and its subsequent impacts on the environment. Between 2016 to 2018, Ryan worked as a post-doctoral researcher on the NERC/CONICYT funded “Glacial hazards in Chile” project (NE/N020693/1) being responsible for the processing and analysis of satellite- and UAV-derived geospatial datasets, the organisation of fieldwork to the central and Patagonian Andes, and the development and submission of peer-reviewed publications. Prior to this position, Ryan worked for 2.5 years as a post-doctoral Researcher at Centro de Estudios Cientificos (CECs) in Valdivia, Chile where he was involved in the monitoring and mapping of various cryospheric features and parameters in the Northern, Central and Patagonian Chilean Andes using satellite datasets. He has participated in field campaigns to Iceland, the European Alps (2 campaigns) and the Central (6 campaigns) and Patagonian (3 campaigns) Andes, establishing and operating hydro-glaciological instrumentation and surveying equipment. Recent research strands include: Mapping glacier and glacial lake change in the Central Chilean Andes; comparing Cryosat, IceSAT and insitu-DGPS elevation measurements in West Antarctica; mapping spatio-temporal snow cover change in the Northern and Central Chilean Andes; generating historic Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) in the Indian Himalayas; quantifying the impact of Glacial Lake Outburst Floods(GLOFs) on down-stream river channel geomorphology in the Patagonia Andes; and the development of GLOF risk assessment frameworks in Chile.
