Åsa Rennermalm is an associate professor at the Department of Geography at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Her research interest is the hydrology of the Arctic region. Currently, she is discovering how water is transported and retained within the Greenland ice sheet to better understand how much meltwater escapes to the ocean and rising global sea levels. Her work involves modeling, satellite and in situ data analysis, and fieldwork. She has participated in several field expeditions to the Arctic, mainly Greenland.
Åsa joined Rutgers faculty in 2009. Before coming to Rutgers, she was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Geography at the University of California Los Angeles (advisor: Laurence C. Smith). Her Ph.D. is in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University (advisor: Eric F. Wood). Her master’s and undergraduate degrees are from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark (advisor: Henrik Soegaard).
