Dr. Ben Hamlington is a Research Scientist in the Sea Level and Ice Group at NASA JPL. He studies the ocean with a particular focus on sea level variability on interannual to decadal timescales. He is interested in how sea level is responds to both natural and anthropogenic forcing, and what this will mean for coastal populations both now and in the future. He is a member of NASA’s Ocean Surface Topography Science team, NASA’s GRACE/GRACE-FO Science Team and is the current team lead of the NASA Sea Level Change Science team. Within this role, he works with practitioners to translate technical information on sea-level rise, and co-develop and co-produce products that can be useful in planning.
