Lara Hughes-Allen (USA)

Université Paris Sud (France)

Lara Hughes-Allen, originally from California, is currently a PhD student in geoscience at Université Paris Sud. Her thesis focuses on the dynamics between permafrost and greenhouse gas emissions from thaw lakes in eastern Siberia, Russia. Lara has always had a passion for the mountains and arctic environments. She spent the last five summers working with the Juneau Icefield Research Program in Southeast Alaska as geomatics faculty and field safety staff where she helped undergraduate students develop glaciological research questions, carry out field measurements, analyze data, and present their research. Lara’s goal as a researcher is to conduct meaningful and productive Arctic research that will increase our understanding of the dynamic processes at work in these environments and help focus mitigation efforts.
