Halley Automation Project Manager
- I first became involved with BAS whilst undertaking my Ph.D at the University of East Anglia. I was fortunate enough to visit the Halley VI Research Station during the 2015/16 season to install atmospheric CO2 and O2 monitoring equipment in the CASLab. The aim of this research was to use these measurements to detect and attribute carbon cycle processes that are fundamental to understanding the Southern Ocean carbon cycle.
- Upon finishing my Ph.D I began working for BAS as an Atmospheric Scientist at Halley during the 2017/18 season making meteorological observations and maintaining a suite of atmospheric instruments.
- In May 2018 I took on a new role as the Halley Automation Project Manager and Science Coordinator. In this role I coordinate the Halley Science and Engineering team during the busy summer season, ensuring all experiments are maintained and that valuable monitoring data are collected. The Automation Project aims to maintain many of the long term monitoring experiments throughout the Antarctic winter by providing an unmanned, automated power supply and data link back to Cambridge. If you are interested in setting up an experiment at Halley, either during the summer season or throughout the Antarctic winter through automation please do get in touch.
