Key Facts:

Stanislav Kutuzov graduated with First Class joint BSc and MSc degree in Glaciology from the Moscow Lomonosov State University, Moscow, Russia in 2005. He joint the Glaciology Laboratory, Institute of Geography, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow as PhD student and research scientist. In 2007-2009 he was a visiting PhD student at the University  of Reading and successfully obtained his PhD in Glaciology in November 2009.

Stanislav was involved in many field work studies in different regions including the Caucasus, Tien Shan, Kamchatka, Russian Arctic, Norway and Kuril Islands. He is a principal investigator and co-investigator in several ongoing international projects such as:

  • Assesment of Glacier Volume in the Northern Caucasus and Its Changes since the Middle of XX Century
  • Development of Integrated Paleoclimatological Reconstruction for the Northern Caucasus Using Ice Cores and Dendrochronology
  • Evaluation of Glacier Changes and Their Impacts in Central Asia
  • Mass Balance of High Asia Glacier Systems and Their Response to Global Warming

Stanislav is also an Academic Secretary of the Glaciological Association which unites scientists from the post-Soviet states.

Stanislav joined the School of Geography and Environmental Sciences in March 2012 as a Marie Curie Research Fellow. He is working on the project 'Dust impacts on glaciated environments' (DIOGENES) with Dr Maria Shahgedanova and Dr Kevin White. This interdisciplinary project addresses impacts of dust on glaciers bringing together two major issues that are in the focus of climate change research: glacier shrinkage and impacts of mineral aerosol (dust) on climate system. The project aims are to:

  • quantify trends in and impacts of dust deposition on glacier melt in the Caucasus Mountains, Russia
  • establish provenance of long-travelled dust
  • evaluate representation of dust transport and deposition in climate models using observational data from the Caucasus.
