Academic Background

PhD in Geotechnical Engineering commenced September 2018 at Newcastle University.

Graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2017 with First Class Honors (78%) MSci Geology with International Year. Awarded the Geology Prize for receiving the highest overall mark within the cohort. International year (2016-17) spent at the University of Copenhagen (Københavns Universitet).

MSci Advanced Project entitled: ‘Are Jamaican lavas analogues for the Earth’s first continental crust?’, gained a mark of 81%. Radiogenic isotope compositions acquired with use of the British Geological Survey’s (BGS, Keyworth) clean labs
and mass spectrometers. Petrogenesis interpreted by assessing radiogenic isotopes, as well as major and trace element contents.

Volunteer researcher at the Open University, Summer 2016. Using the newly developed software, Pro3D (a 3D image viewer), to examine and measure ripple-like bedforms found along the Opportunity rover traverse. Correlation found between the height and length of these bedforms to aid the future European Space Agency Exomars mission in manoeuvring new rovers. Abstract accepted for the EGU General Assembly 2017 (second author).
