I am a geologist interested in Earth’s surface: the processes that operate on it, and how it has evolved on billion-year timescales. I have a particular interest in the geochemistry of sediments, soils and natural waters. I primarily use and develop quantitative methods (e.g., inverse modelling, compositional data analysis, optimal transport) to better understand these geochemical datasets. I have been fortunate to conduct fieldwork in a range of locations, such as the Cairngorms in Scotland and Bjørnøya (“Bear Island”) in Norway, sampling modern rivers and sedimentary rocks.
I have Bachelor and Master’s degrees in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge and earned my doctorate from Imperial College London.
Some problems I am interested in are:
