Dr. Ralf Greve
Professor, Glacier and Ice Sheet Research
I studied physics at the Darmstadt University of Technology (Technische Universität Darmstadt), Germany, from 1985 to 1991 (diploma thesis on granular avalanches), and then did my doctorate at the Department of Mechanics, Darmstadt University of Technology, from 1992 to 1995 on ice-sheet dynamics and thermodynamics. Until 2003 I worked as a research associate (wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter), assistant professor (wissenschaftlicher Assistent) and lecturer (Privatdozent) at the Department of Mechanics in the group of Prof. Kolumban Hutter. In early 2000, I received the post-doctoral lecturing qualification (habilitation) with a thesis entitled "Large-scale glaciation on Earth and on Mars". Now I'm employed as professor for glacier and ice sheet research at the Institute of Low Temperature Science, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan. I'm continuing my research related to the dynamics and thermodynamics of ice sheets and shelves (details below). Furthermore I'm involved in teaching and student supervision duties at the Graduate School of Environmental Science (Division of Earth System Science).
