About me

I am a PhD. student at the Research School of Earth Sciences at the Australian National University. I work in the Experimental Petrology group, studying the mechanisms of water (H) incorporation in the anhydrous minerals of the earth’s mantle.

I completed my undergraduate degree at Imperial College London, where my MSci. project was on the modelling of pressure and temperature evolution of high-grade metamorphic rocks in the Lewisian gneiss complex of the Northwestern Highlands, Scotland.
