My passion for earth science began in high school and continued as an undergraduate at the University of Sydney, where I majored in geology and geophysics. During my PhD in Earth Science, I will seek to better understand and quantify how deep Earth processes, such as mantle convection, affect surface processes. In particular, my research will employ an observational approach to quantify the spatial and temporal interconnections between mantle convection and surface expressions on Earth during the Phanerozoic. This research has implications for many disciplines, including oceanography, climate science and sedimentology. I am excited to join the Gates Cambridge community.
