I am a glaciologist interested in past environmental change, with a strong focus on marine settings. My research examines the presence and removal of ice shelves in the palaeo-record to better understand the (in)stability of marine ice sheets. By combining sedimentology, geochemistry and micropaleontology when analysing mud extracted from the seafloor in the Minch basin (NW Scotland) my research aims to elucidate the environmental triggers which preceded and followed the collapse of ice shelves in the past.
