Maddie's research in the Doran Lab involves the temporal patterns of snowfall and snow persistence in Taylor Valley, Antarctica to gauge the ecological impact of snow as a light disturbance on perennially frozen lakes. Through quantitative analysis of camera images, satellite imagery, PAR, and meteorologic data Maddie examines the role of snow events in reducing underwater PAR.
