His most recent research interests include the scientific and practical aspects of environmental and engineering problems involving snow, ice and permafrost. These interests include problems in the areas of soil physics, thermodynamics, heat and mass flow, and growth and decay processes that are associated with ice, permafrost, subsea permafrost, seasonally frozen ground and seasonal snow cover. He is currently working on the improvement of mathematical methods in the fields of geology and geophysics.
