Ken Mankoff is a research scientist studying ice sheets and polar oceans as indicators of climate change. He is formally trained as a computer scientist and earth scientist focusing on polar glacier hydrology and oceanography, and has worked in the following areas:
- Reproducible computational workflows and scientific publications using open source tools.
- Remote sensing including spacecraft operations and mission control, sensor calibration, and end-user imagery use.
- Collecting data from high-risk remote field sites such as underneath a glacier, within a crevasse field, or from the ocean at the edge of calving glaciers.
- Custom or novel sensor life-cycle – Design, development, construction, deployment, operation, and field repair/debugging.
- Leading logistically complicated field campaigns with international stakeholders and participants ranging from multi-national corporations to Ph.D. students.
- Public outreach and education including popular press interviews, museum display creation, and speaking engagements on all seven continents from the U.N. General Assembly Room to kindergarten classrooms.
