Katherine Clayton

Geochemistry Laboratory Manager

While completing my undergraduate degree in Geosciences from the University of Utah (2011), I specialised in palaentology as a collections assistant at the Utah Museum of Natural History. Subsequently, I’ve worked in the oil industry as a geomechanical engineer, before finishing a masters degree in Geology at the University of the Witwatersrand (2017).

I currently manage a suite of facilities for the department, including the XRD, SEM, and FTIR. Please contact me at katherine.clayton@earth.ox.ac.uk for inquiries and bookings.
