Dr. Brent Minchew
Brent Minchew is the Cecil and Ida Green Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he leads the Remote Sensing and Glacier Dynamics group. Brent received his BS and MS in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008 and 2010, respectively. He earned his PhD at the California Institute of Technology in 2016 and was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at the British Antarctic Survey from 2016 to 2018. Brent’s research interests focus on the flow, deformation, and fracture of glacier ice. He uses remote sensing observations and simple physical models to study the mechanics of rapid glacier flow.
