Biography

I am a geochemist with strong research interests in isotope geochemistry as a tool to address scientific questions from melt generation to surface environmental pollution. My research uses state of the art multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS) and thermal ionisation mass spectrometry (TIMS), supported by an extensive suite of clean labs for elemental separation in materials from rocks to soils to water.

2018 - Associate Professor, University of Durham

2011 - 2018: NERC Research Fellow, Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Imperial College London

2008 - 2011: PDRA, NERC Research Fellow, University of Oxford

2004 - 2008: PhD, University of Bristol

2002 - 2004: Master of Science, Washington State University, USA

1998 - 2002: B.Sc. Honors, Carleton University, Canada

I am actively recruiting postgraduate students under the broad themes of:

  • Subduction zone geochemistry
  • Metal Pollution identification and mitigation
  • Developement of isotopic tools for Earth systems

Specific projects are usually advertised in November for starting in October the following year. Projects could be funded through the IAPETUS2 DTP (https://www.iapetus2.ac.uk/), Durham Doctoral Scholarships, or other means.

Do not hesitate to get in touch at any time of year to discuss potential projects!
