I am a PhD student in the School of Geography and Sustainable Development at the University of St Andrews. Previously I studied a BSc (Hons) in Marine Science with Arctic Studies at the University of the Highlands and Islands (SAMS) (2014 – 2018). My research is largely focused on the impacts of anthropogenic activity on sedimentary carbon stores.
