Ádam Ignéczi received a BSc in Earth Science (2012) and an MSc in Geography (2014) from the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary.
He undertook a PhD entitled “Greenland Ice Sheet hydrology and dynamics: the role of surface and basal topography” at the University of Sheffield, which he completed in 2019.
Currently, he is a Postdoctoral Research Associate on the ERC-funded PALGLAC project (PI: Prof Chris Clark), investigating the effects of surface-to-bed meltwater transport on contemporary- and former ice sheets.
Adam is also interested in palaeoglaciology and periglacial research. He carried out glacier reconstructions in the Southern Carpathians during his MSc, and currently he is working on a project to constrain glacier fluctuations in Northeast Greenland to contribute to the Greenland Caves Project.
He is also involved in the Hungarian Dry Andes Research Programme, which monitors the periglacial processes of the extremely arid high altitude Puna de Atacama.
