Graduate of Imperial College London (Class of 2016) with MSci in Geophysics with a year abroad (University of California, Berkeley, 2014-2015). I am associated with the Oxford NERC Doctoral Training Partnership in Environmental Research, as a Clarendon scholar.

I am working on seismic tomography of the Earth’s mantle on a regional scale, using both surface and body waves, to sample the upper mantle in high resolution. I hope to contribute to the debate on subducted slab behaviour in the mantle transition zone.

My research falls under the umbrella of the DEEPTIME project, which seeks to ‘generate a quantitative, global geography of the world’s former oceans and their plate boundaries’. I aim to achieve this on a regional to pan-regional scale.
