Personal profile


I am an environmental geochemist, with an analytical chemistry background using a wide variety of techniques including but not limited to ICP, spectroscopy, SEM and XRD. Currently researching “anti-microbial resistance in the real world”, which explores the influence of historical industrial significance and its pollution-related effects on multiple-antimicrobial resistance in bacteria, and how it currently impacts public-, agricultural, and environmental health. This project includes using microbiological and geochemical analysis techniques. 

Previous research includes the use of analytical chemistry and speciation methods to aid waste management, water quality and environmental issues, particularly regarding the steel industry. This includes: emission abatement, cleaning technologies and process principles including chemical environmental cycles, sustainable resource management, environmental pollution, regulatory testing, environmental impact assessment, soil science, water pollution, and inorganic chemistry.

I have been at the forefront of interdisciplinary research with my current role involving a combination of geochemical analysis with prokaryotic and eukaryotic microbiology to understand contaminated estuarine ecosystems. This has also enabled me to develop my communication skills cross disciplinary and become proficient in microbiology and molecular biology techniques, not only with academics but also with industry and Environmental Agencies. I am keen to continue research in an interdisciplinary and energetic academic environment.

Ultimately this highlights my interest in environmental systems on a biogeochemical platform, with a focus on monitoring and remidial potential, particuarly with regards to ecosystem and human health impact.
