Gabriel Lewis

Graduate Student

Gabe's PhD at Dartmouth will focus on the mass balance and ablation of Greenland's ice sheet, combining geophysics in the field with atmospheric models, ice core chemistry, and snow pit analysis. He is interested in the relationship between the ice-atmosphere balance, long term effects of global warming, and combining geologically accurate models with field data to ascertain information about the glaciers' subsurface.

Growing up surrounded by redwood forests along the Pacific North Coast in Arcata, California, Gabe spent four years on the East Coast and graduated from Williams College in 2013. As a geology and physics double major, he researched glaciology and classical mechanics, completing an honors thesis on the disappearance of permafrost in the Front Range of Colorado. As vice president of the Williams Outing Club, Gabe has extensive experience leading adventures in backpacking, backcountry skiing, canoeing and snowshoeing in addition to teaching kayaking and skiing P.E. classes. He was also involved with tutoring and mentoring local high school students in physics, math and chemistry throughout his four years in college. During his studies abroad and semester teaching in Christchurch, New Zealand, Gabe studied atmospheric fluid dynamics and field geology in addition to finding time to ski, kayak, surf, rock climb and backpack. Always striving to balance his educational aspirations and nature, Gabe has led backpacking and sea kayaking trips for Overland in Alaska, as well as completed a thru-hike of the 2660 mile Pacific Crest Trail
