I am a PhD researcher at the University of Edinburgh in the UK, and an external PhD student at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS).

I graduated from Lancaster University in 2014 with 1st Class Honours in Natural Science, with time spent studying abroad at McMaster University, Canada. I then completed an MSc Exploration Geophysics at the University of Leeds, graduating with Distinction. My MSc thesis was focused on estimation of active source seismic p-wave attenuation within the ice of Pine Island Glacier, Antarctica.

My interests lie in glacial geophysics, in particular the development and application of processing and inversion algorithms to Ground Penetrating Radar.
