Silicon cycling in the oceans
My main research interests lie in the investigation of modern biogeochemical cycling and past ocean processes, focusing on biogenic opal and silicon cycling in seawater.
After finishing my undergraduate degree in Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, I carried out a doctorate in Antarctic biogeochemistry at Oxford University. I worked for 18 months at Oxford after completing my thesis as a postdoctoral research associate, before moving to the US for over two years as a postdoctoral scholar at Woods Hole Oceanographic Research Institution, working on ocean chemistry and palaeoclimate. I then moved back to the UK, initially as a Research Lecturer at Cardiff University, then as a Royal Society University Research Fellow at the University of Bristol. I have published over 20 well-cited, peer reviewed papers, and have been invited to give talks at several international conferences. I'm a director of Antarctic Science Ltd, and sit on the peer review college for the Natural Environment Research Council. I also supervise postgraduate students, have a university teaching qualification, and extensive classroom and field teaching experience.
