Volcanologist (Aspiring and soon-to-be-qualified)
So why Volcano Science?
As a child, scrambling up horizon touching mountains and dormant volcanoes changed the world from ink on a page to a beautiful, captivating place I’ve wanted to explore ever since.
In 2010, I got the chance to walk around the ancient Roman town of Herculaneum in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius, destroyed by pyroclastic flows in 79AD. Walking around the town, it underscored, despite our civilised surroundings, how violent the planet we call home is. To me, volcanoes act as a keyhole into the Earth’s dynamic nature, and have much to tell about the innards of our world and beyond. This interest in the workings of our planet has only increased as I've gotten older.
My current interest strikes at the very foundation of what makes the Earth tick: geophysics and fluid dynamics. Both of which offer a way to make sense of the numbers and factors that govern the way our world looks and works.
When I'm Off Duty:
I have a website I forget to update which tells you about the various things I get up to. Areas I've traveled to now includes Guatemala, where the MSc Volcanology cohort worked with and assisted INSIVUMEH with activities such as setting up monitoring equipment, community outreach at Panimache Observatory, and analysing recent volcanic deposits within the region.
Another area of travel is looking at the volcanic activity in Iceland.
I also got roped into a Bristol Improv Comedy group - and help to organise/run/star in the highly rated "Dynamite Comedy Night" at the Bristol Improv Theatre every other Sunday.
