I am a geologist specialising in mineralogy, who has worked for the University of Exeter since 2005, and I also manage the Chemical, Imaging & Mineralogical Facility (CIMF). I predominantly carry out research and support research for both academics and students. Teaching and student supervision forms part of my role which includes students of all levels and training of academics/external clients when required. I am a point of contact for commercial clients that use the CSM analytical facility and I manage commercial activities.

My main expertise is the QEMSCAN®, an advanced automated scanning electron microscope that analyses inorganic samples such as rock and soil (Exeter University was the first university in the UK to obtain the technology in 2004). With over 10 years experience of QEMSCAN®, I have analysed and processed a wide range of samples including soils, mineral concentrates (oxides, sulphides), supergene ores, contaminated muds (incl. tailings), slags, Egyptian cosmetics, laterites, bauxites, ceramics, cements, heavy minerals sands, dust samples (atmospheric, volcanic), trace ore samples (silver, gold, Ta/Nb, Pt-Pd), igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic geological samples, lunar and Martian meteorites, Trinitites, Fulgarites, bottom ash incinerator waste, perlite, house bricks and other specialist applications. I am involved in all stages of QEMSCAN® work from sample preparation to instrument operation, data processing and database development.

Additional responsibilities include providing support (research, teaching and commercial) for other analytical instruments such as a low vacuum scanning electron microscope (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). I am a member of the Applied Mineralogy Group (AMG) that is part of the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland.
