Matthew G. Cooper
Dr. Matthew Cooper was a NCRL Ph.D. student and NASA Earth System Science Fellow (NESSF) in the UCLA Department of Geography from 2015-2021. His research interests include understanding the impacts of climate change on meltwater runoff produced by melting snow and glacier ice through physical modeling, field observations, and remote sensing. One highlight of his Ph.D. research was discovery of substantial retention and refreezing of meltwater in bare ice of the Greenland Ice Sheet, an overlooked physical process that will improve sea level rise models. Prior to the Ph.D. Matt received an MS in Water Resources Science from Oregon State University and a BA in Environmental Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz. After graduating, he became a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL).
