Ecological response to environmental change in the Boreal Realm and the origins of three mass extinction events Aug 1, 2013 - Jan 31, 2020
Since the Cambrian Explosion of life on Earth, about 540 million years ago (Ma), ecosystems have been suffered repeated mass extinctions. There have been at least five major extinctions since then, most recently the famous event 65Ma, that wiped out...

“Unpicking uncertainties in our interpretation of explosive eruptions: evidence from the Bronze Age Minoan eruption of Santorini" Sep 1, 2020 - Aug 31, 2021
A small solo research project involving fieldwork in Santorini and geochemical analysis at the University of Hull on the triped quad LA-ICP-MS. I was successful in two different grant applications to fund work on this project, so have set up a separa...

Analysing the mobility of metals and Rare Earth Elements during deformation in calcite within the Flamborough Head Fault Zone Sep 1, 2020 - Aug 31, 2021
Dating faults and fractures can provide critical information on when faults moved and when and how fluid flowed through them. This is often critical information for the energy industry from determining maturity of many different types of reservoirs....

When and Why does it Rain in the Desert: Utilising unique speleothem and dust records on the northern edge of the Sahara

When and Why does it Rain in the Desert: Utilising unique speleothem and dust records on the northern edge of the Sahara Apr 19, 2022 - Oct 25, 2025
Tropical semi-arid regions are key to understanding global climate telecommunications, and populations living in these areas are highly sensitive to climate change. An increase in aridity would result in serious famines, economic collapse, conflict a...

Decolonising UK Earth Science pedagogy - from the hidden histories of our geological institutions to inclusive curricula Jan 4, 2022 - Oct 3, 2023
The dominance of western Earth Sciences (i.e. geology and geosciences) discourses continues to (re)appropriate the contributions of the 'Other-indigenous' populations. At the end of the 18th century rocks, minerals and ores were considered part of th...

GeoCoLab Dec 15, 2021 - May 31, 2022
The foundations of a discipline shape the way in which knowledge is created, by whom, for what, and dictate who is allowed to generate knowledge. Geoscience as an academic pursuit was born from colonialism, allowing for Western knowledge and scientis... Read More about GeoCoLab.

Building solid ground for racial diversity in Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences postgraduate research Dec 1, 2021 - May 31, 2022
There is a well-documented racial diversity crisis in Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (GEES) subjects in the Global North, which leads to inequities in who does environmental research1,2. This project aims to increase participation and re... Read More about Building solid ground for racial diversity in Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences postgraduate research.

Towards enabling sustainable expansion of offshore wind while protecting marine benthic biodiversity and functioning (BEcoWIND) Apr 1, 2023 - Mar 31, 2027
Meeting energy demands in the most sustainable way is a major challenge for society. Offshore wind farms - groupings of wind turbines on submerged sediments - offers part of the solution for the energy transition that is needed to mitigate climate ch...
