About

Academic: I was awarded a PhD in physical geography in 2015 by the University of Southampton for my thesis on Patagonian palaeoclimate and palaeolimnology. I previously completed a bachelors degree in Geography (BSc hons.) at the University of Manchester. I am currently a laboratory technician for Geography at the University of Manchester, having previously worked for Geography & Environment at the University of Southampton, and am a registered scientist with the Institute of Science and Technology. I’m also a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a member of the Quaternary Research Association. My C.V. is available via my LinkedIn page.

Personal: I’m a hill-walker and occasional climber and mountaineer, and have been known to climb easy trad’, sport and winter mixed routes. When it rains I go caving. I’m a passable down-hill skier and practice recurve and English longbow archery with a local club. I hold the Mountain Leader (summer) qualification and am a member of the Mountain Training Association. I recently took my first steps in leaning to dive and hold a PADI Advanced Open Water qualification. I’m a reluctant runner and having completed the Manchester Half Marathon, have foolishly signed up to the full marathon this year.
