Research summary

I'm interested in biogeochemical cycles of glacial environments, with a focus on subglacial weathering processes and the export of key nutrients to downstream ecosystems.

I'm curretly using silicon isotope composition to:

  • Investigate subglacial weathering processes
  • Understand export of Si from subglacial environments
  • Assess differences between glacial and non-glacial environments

I'm also investigating fjord environments to:

  • Assess the impact of glacially-derived nutrients on wider biogeochemical cycles
  • Consider the consquences of Si with a distinct isotopic signature to the wider Si cycle 


Part of ERC and Royal Society funded projects:

ICY-LAB (Isotope Cycling in the Labrador sea):  ...

    • Silicon isotopes can aid our understanding of subglacial weathering processes
    • Subglacial environments export isotopically distinct Si
    • Potential implications for our understanding of the wider Si cycle
