Current Research

I am researching the surface behaviour of materials, working with Professor Geoff Nash as my primary supervisor and Professor Oana Ghita as my secondary supervisor.

Previous Experience

I completed a MSc in Volcanology at the University of Bristol and have an undergraduate degree in Physics from the University of Southampton. I have also volunteered with the USGS in Hawaii.
