I am a postgraduate researcher at the National Oceanography Centre, University of Southampton, and the British Antarctic Survey with previous professional software development experience.

My current research interests are in polar and climate science using palae­ocean­ographic proxy records. I’m also really interested in data visualisation, visual communication, and design.

When I’m not working, I like nothing better than to be outside: running, cycling (road and gravel), trekking, wild swimming, sailing, SUP, kayaking, or growing my own veg on my allotment!
