Bio

I joined the staff at the University of Leoben at the end of 2020. Prior to that I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford and a non-stipendiary lecturer at St. Anne's College (constituent college of U. Oxford). 

While at Oxford I primarily looked at space weathering products on the Moon (with Prof. Jon Wade), but also worked on gold deposits (with Prof. Laurence Robb) as well as UHT-P rocks (with Prof. Dave Waters).

Since 2017 I have also worked closely with the U. Oxford Dept. of Materials, and retain visiting scholar status in there in the Research group in Atom Probe TOmography and Reconstruction (RAPToR).  

I am an avid outdoor enthusiast, and feel very fortunate to be living in a place with such beautiful scenery (and rock!!).
