I am a PhD student on the NERC Environmental Sciences DTP course studying the volcanism, sedimentation and hydrothermal activity of Santorini, Greece.
Coming from a Chemistry background, I am interested in understanding the chemical composition of Satorini’s lavas and how they have evolved over the last 3.5k years. I am also intrigued by how much hydrothermal activity played a role in Santorini’s eruptive history and whether any anomalies in the sediment can give us insight into eruptive patterns and clues into the future.
I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2021 with an MSci in Chemistry (First Class). I spent one year at the University of Bologna carrying out an organic Chemistry project and participated in a Volcanology summer school for a month with GeoTenerife in the Canary Islands. In between my undergraduate and my PhD I worked as a journalist for a year.
