My main interest lies in investigation of the geological and tectonic evolution of Antarctica, using gravity and magnetic data. This has led to publications in a broad range of fields including crustal architecture, mountain uplift, and magma emplacement. I have also worked and published on the geomorphological investigation of the hidden sub-ice topography of Antarctica.
Since completing my DPhil at Oxford University in 2007 on Gravity Anomalies, Flexure, and the Long-term Rigidity of the Continental Lithosphere, I have worked at the British Antarctic Survey as an aerogeophysicist. My role includes collection, processing and interpretation of a range of airborne geophysical data, including magnetic, gravity and radar data. I have participated in five Antarctic field seasons, including working as field science leader, responsible for flight planning, prioritisation and overseeing data quality control. This work has included successful collaboration with a range of international and UK academic partners. I also helped run the successful TELLUS SW LIDAR survey across Devon and Cornwall.
