Post Doctoral Researcher
I am a postdoctoral researcher working in the ice core gas analysis lab at the British Antarctic Survey. I am also an affiliate of Trinity Hall College, Cambridge. My current project focuses on developing a new, highly-precise, dry extraction analytical system for CO2 and C isotopes in ice core samples.
Aug 2019 – present: Postdoctoral Researcher, British Antarctic Survey, UK.
May 2019 – Aug 2019: Research Assistant, WACSWAIN project, processing Skytrain ice core. University of Cambridge, Dept. of Earth Sci, UK.
Oct 2015 – May 2019: PhD, ‘Organics in Ice: Novel organic compounds in ice cores for use in palaeoclimate reconstruction’. University of Cambridge, Dept. of Chemistry and British Antarctic Survey, UK.
Oct 2014 – Oct 2015: MSc Polar and Alpine Change, University of Sheffield, UK and University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS), Svalbard.
Oct 2010 – Oct 2014: BSc (Hons) (Int) Geology and Physical Geography, University of Leeds, UK, and University of Queensland, Australia.
