About

Currently, I am employed as a postdoctoral research associate in the rock deformation laboratory at the University of Manchester. My research focusses on fluid injection experiments in shale material, as well as imaging of rock deformation experiments using X-ray tomography.
In 2015, I completed a PhD in experimental rock deformation at UCL. My research focussed on experimental determination of the Fracture Toughness and Ductility of Shale, and how these properties change with elevated confining pressure and temperature. I also worked on Singular Integral Equation modelling of crack propagation through anisotropic media.

Previously, I worked as a Geophysicist in Seismic Data Processing at PGS Exploration Ltd. I worked largely on 2D and 3D time imaging of West African shallow-water datasets, through entire processing flows, including; 3D SRME, Kirchoff PSTM, Velocity Analysis, Radon Demultiple and TP Deconvolution..

I received an Distinction in MSc Exploration Geophysics from the University of Leeds in 2008, including a research project conducted over 3 months at dGB Earth Sciences in the Netherlands

A long long time ago, I received 2:1 in MSci Physics from the University of Durham.
