I manage the earth science research laboratories, and provide expertise in micropalaeontological and geochemical research techniques, as well as support to palaeontological, mineralogical and sedimentological processing, imaging and analysing.
With a passion for communicating science I also undertake workshops and geoscience sessions for schools, and was co-founder of the Girls into Geoscience initiative, running our annual event and activities.
