Career highlights

I am currently working towards my PhD, investigating sources of soluble aerosol iron and their impact on primary productivity in Australian and Antarctic waters. I participated in the Roosevelt Island Climate Evolution (RICE) ice core drilling campaign in the 2012–13 season.

I recently completed my MSc at Victoria University of Wellington and GNS Science (a centre for earth, geoscience and isotope research). My work focussed on the contribution of locally derived aeolian dust to primary production in the south-west Ross Sea.
