Summary

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.

Biography

I obtained my undergraduate degree in Natural Sciences at Cambridge University (2004), before completing a doctorate in Antarctic biogeochemistry at Oxford University (2008). I was awarded a postdoctoral scholarship at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, working on ocean chemistry and paleoclimate (2009-2011). I then moved back to the UK, initially as a Research Lecturer at Cardiff University (2012-2013), then as a Royal Society University Research Fellow at the University of Bristol (2013-). I have published over 30 well-cited, peer reviewed papers, with over 400 citations, and have been invited to give talks at several international conferences. I am a director of Antarctic Science Ltd, and sits on the UK National Committee of Antarctic Research. I was awarded the European Association of Geochemistry Hautermans Award for early career geochemistry (2016), a European Research Council starter grant (2016), and was selected for the Young Academy of Europe (2017).
