I am a University Lecturer at the University Cambridge and teaching Fellow at Clare College, working jointly between the Institute of Astronomy and Department of Earth Sciences to understand the evolution and habitability of terrestrial planets in the solar system and around other stars.

I have recently returned to Cambridge from The Devision of Geological and Planetary Sciences, Caltech where I was the Geology Option Postdoctoral Research Fellow. I study the chemical and dynamic processes occurring in the planetary interiors and crusts through a combination of fieldwork, geochemical analysis and modelling.

MeI have spent much of my academic life at The University of Cambridge, first as an undergraduate on the Natural Sciences Tripos, then as a PhD student in the Department of Earth Sciences and then as a Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College. In addition to Caltech, during my postdoc I have also travelled to Japan as a JSPS postdoctoral fellow, working with colleagues in the Institute for the Study of the Earth's Interior.

Descriptions of my research can be found on this site, along with with links to journal papers and conference abstracts. My Google scholar profile contains article metrics.
