The 2022 Outstanding Student and PhD candidate Presentation (OSPP) Award is awarded to Oliver Pollard for the poster/PICO entitled:
Investigating the Sensitivity of North Sea Glacial Isostatic Adjustment during the Last Interglacial to the Penultimate Deglaciation of Global Ice Sheets (Pollard, O.; Barlow, N.; Gregoire, L.; Gomez, N.; Cartelle, V.; Ely, J.; Astfalck, L.)
Oliver is a PhD student at the School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds where he is working on modelling last interglacial sea-level change as part of the ERC RISeR project. Before starting his PhD, Oliver studied Natural Sciences, majoring in maths and minoring in physics. His masters dissertation focused on building and running a numerical tidal model with Python to understand global tidal patterns and this lead him to pursue his current PhD in sea-level modelling. His current research interests include glacial isostatic adjustment, ice-sheet modelling, gaussian process emulation, and simulation sensitivity analysis.
