Lander Van Tricht is a PhD student at the Free University of Brussels (VUB) Department of Geography in the research group Ice and Climate. He mainly focuses on the dynamics of mountain glaciers and their interaction with the climatic system. Lander’s current projects centers on the Morteratsch glacier complex in the Swiss Alps and different glaciers in Kyrgyzstan. Projecting the evolution of these glaciers in a changing climate is the ultimate goal. During fieldwork, Lander constantly uses and optimizes new methods to better monitor the selected glaciers, for example with the help of drones.
