I undertook my MEarthSci undergraduate masters degree at St. Peter's College, University of Oxford, under the supervision of Prof. Nick Tosca and Dr. Rosalie Tostevin. I examined the relationship between the hydrated iron-phosphate mineral vivianite and the mid-Proterozoic biological pump. 

In Cambridge, I explore the isotopic systematics of water undergoing evaporation and testing experimental results of 3D-printed water basins against their physical counterparts. Additionally, I am interested in how the oxygen and hydrogen isotope systematics works in deep time and whether this can teach us about the environments in which sedimentary minerals formed. 

I am passionate about science communication and education, and I have volunteered at various UK science events (including the Big Bang Science Fair and Royal Society Summer Exhibition). Please feel free to contact me with any outreach or education opportunities. I have contributed to the university science magazine, BlueSci. I am looking for interesting stories to cover!
