I do research on ice mechanics and Arctic technology. I am interested on the behavior of sea ice and on cases when ice collides with a structure, or when a sea ice sheet interacts with another ice sheet. Also, I am interested on the ice loads, which are the loads that the ice exerts on a structur...
