About me

I am a planetary scientist interested in finding evidence of life on Mars. Currently, I am working towards my PhD at the University of Stirling, funded by the STFC.

In 2020 I completed an MEarthSci(Hons) in Geology with Planetary Science at the University of Manchester. For my masters project, I modelled the energy availability for iron reducing bacteria from different iron oxides and organic molecules; with a relevance to martian environments. Whilst at Manchester, I helped with fossil identification sessions for secondary school students and first year university students.

In my free time I enjoy fossilling and learning more about the geology around Stirling.
