I am a postdoctoral researcher at The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) in Copenhagen (DK). Prior to this I studied for my PhD in palaeoglaciology at Swansea University (UK); this was focussed on reconstructing the glacial and oceanographic history of southeast Greenland from both terrestrial and marine perspectives. My current research builds on this work and is part of a larger project that is investigating marine sediments cores from around Greenland. Analysis of these cores provides records of oceanographic and glaciological change over timescales of hundreds to thousands of years. These data are extremely valuable for understanding what controls the behaviour of the vast Greenland Ice Sheet.

I am also interested in the communication of science. I have worked extensively with 196 Productions Ltd. to produce a series of documentary films about the work of the Swansea Glaciology Group in Greenland. I will be continuing to produce video projects about the scientific work being undertaken in the Marine Geology and Glaciology Group at GEUS; these will be produced in collaboration with the Underground Channel and 77th Parallel Productions.
