I started my geological career in Plymouth where I did the four year MGeol degree, graduating in 2013 as a Master of Geology with first class honours. I spent the summer months of 2013 working as a historical mines researcher with a geotechnical firm in Devon. In November 2013 I began my PhD at the University of Glasgow with supervisors Prof. Paul Younger, Dr. Daniel Koehn and Prof. Fin Stuart (SUERC). My PhD is looking at geothermal energy in the East African Rift Valley, by combining geochemistry and structural geology to model subsurface fluid flow and establish crustal vs magmatic contributions. In addition to my PhD I have been involved in developing some of the undergraduate modules and I am passionate about encouraging more females in to the STEM subjects. Away from academia I spend a lot of time walking with my 6 year old border collie, who is as mad as a box of frogs and takes up most of my spare time.
