Robin Bell is a lecturer at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University. She received her B.A. from Middlebury in 1980 and her PhD from Columbia in 1989. She researches ice sheet dynamics and mass balance, continental dynamics, estuarine processes, and linkages between ice sheet processes and subglacial geology. She won the Department of Geological Sciences Storke Award 1992 from Columbia University. She is also interested in the interaction of ecosystems and geologic systems from microbes to benthic habitats, tectonic uplift and feedback mechanisms, and the interaction of tectonics and ice sheet dynamics. Additionally she studies gravity and magnetic measurement techniques for marine and airborne applications and gravity gradiometry.
