Prior to her current role, Dr Hogg gained a PhD in Earth Observation of the cryosphere at the University of Leeds, and held a number of independent fellowship positions funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
Professor Hogg’s primary field of expertise is Earth Observation of the Polar regions, where over the past decade where she has gained expertise in a wide range of Earth observation data sources and processing methods including techniques such as satellite radar altimetry and radar interferometry. Dr Hogg has used satellite Earth Observation data to write journal papers on ice speed, grounding line location, ice elevation change, and calving front migration. Dr Hogg has broad experience of collaborative research, having managed, led or worked on over 25 international research projects funded by ESA, NERC, UKSA & NASA; collaborated with international project partners from 37 institutions in 12 countries including: USA, Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Denmark, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Norway, Finland and the UK. Dr Hogg is deeply connected to the international Earth observation community, and through her role on the UK Space Agencies (UKSA) Earth Observation Advisory Committee (EOAC) and the ESA ROSE-L Mission Advisory Group. She enjoys working with academics and space industry experts to plan a roadmap that will achieve scientific and industrial strategic goals that shape the future direction of our national Earth observation capability. In 2020 Dr Hogg was given the European Geophysical Union (EGU) Cryosphere Division Outstanding Early Career Scientist award, she was awarded an Alan Turing Institute (ATI) Turing Fellowship in 2021, and a Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) Fellowship in 2022.
