BSC Geophysics with Geology - Durham University (2014 - 2017)

Master's by Research - Durham University (2017 - 2018) - "Geodetic Network Design for Low-Cost GNSS"

PhD - University of Leeds (2018 - ) - "The co-evolution of mountain buiding and seismic hazard in regions of continental convergence"

Research interests

My primary interests lie in the use of geodetic observations, in particular InSAR, to map large-scale crustal deformation, and how this influences the formation of mountain ranges and local seismic hazard. I am also interested in the application of low-cost GNSS stations to the study of fault slip, and the optimal design of these geodetic networks.
