Dr Sally Wood

Biography

I graduated in Geology with subsidiary Biology and Chemistry in 2004. After graduating I spent 2 years as an aviation weather forecaster with the UK Met Office, before leaving to pursue other interests. I returned to education in 2009, building on my background in Earth, biological and atmospheric sciences with a masters in Earth Systems Science, graduating with distinction in 2011. This was followed by a 6 month contract as a research assistant with BRIDGE. I am now continuing the research begun during my MRes thesis project as a PhD student in the School of Geographical Sciences.

Aside from my academic work, I am interested in scientific communication and engagement, and have participated in a number of voluntary outreach events with the University of Bristol and Bristol Natural History Consortium. I am also trained in SCUBA and boat handling.
