Melinda is a polar scientist at the University of Washington’s Applied Physics Laboratory – Polar Science Center. Her work uses a combination of satellite, airborne, field and model data to study the frozen oceans in the Arctic and Antarctic environments. She’s been involved in several polar expeditions, traveling by aircraft, ship, and snowmobile to collect measurements of sea ice to better understand its role in the Earth system. From growing up in a small town in Oklahoma to being frozen in the middle of the Arctic Ocean, she loves to inspire students to break the norms and reach for new possibilities.
