Cameron Planck

JSEP Graduate Fellow; Ph.D. Student, Mechanical Engineering

Cameron Planck is a PhD student studying Mechanical Engineering at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. His research is focused on observing changes occurring to the mass balance of sea ice in the Arctic. 

As an engineer, he has been working to develop the next generation of sea ice mass balance buoy, which is used to determine the thickness of Arctic sea ice autonomously. As a scientist, he seeks to answer the questions: 1.) what changes are occurring to the extent and thickness of sea ice in the Arctic, and 2.) what are the environmental forcings causing these changes?

At Thayer, Cameron is a member of Thayer Council and is in the PhD Innovation Program. His hobbies include photography, snowboarding, wood and metal working, and hiking. He is from Eugene, Oregon, and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Oregon State University.
