Mary received her Ph.D. in engineering sciences from the University of California San Diego. Her current research is centered on transfer processes in porous media, including air-snow exchange in the polar regions and in soils in temperate areas. Mary is also an adjunct professor at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College, where she serves as thesis advisor to students at undergraduate, Master's, and Ph.D. levels. She is a strong supporter of education and outreach, and works with the National Science Teachers Association and with science centers and museums to engage the general public and students. She is prinicipal investigator on snow research at Summit Station, and is the U.S. Principal Investigator on the Norwegian-U.S. Traverse from Troll Station to the South Pole. Her work can be seen in the POLAR-PALOOZA mini-series of podcasts.
