Higher Degree by Research Candidate

Postgraduate Student

School of Physical Sciences

Faculty of Sciences

I commenced my undergraduate studies at The University of Adelaide in 2008, and graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Geology, Ecology and Environmental Geoscience. I continued on to an Honours year, graduating in 2011 with First Class Honours in Geology after investigating the stratigraphic and tectonic history of the Proterozoic Cuddapah Basin.

During 2012 and 2013 I worked as a Graduate Geologist at Santos Ltd., before returning to The University of Adelaide in 2014 to commence a PhD. My main interest is in the use of clumped isotope analysis of carbonates to derive quantitative estimates of past temperatures, and the application of this technique to investigate the nature and timing of climate change during the last glacial-interglacial transition in Australia.
