SPITFIRE PhD Candidate, University of Southampton
My undergraduate degree, BSc Ocean Science, was at Bangor University. I then completed a Master’s degree in Oceanography at the University of Southampton, in which I undertook a research project compiling slow sinking carbon data from the Atlantic Ocean, with samples ranging from the Arctic to the Southern Ocean. I am now a third year NERC funded PhD student at the University of Southampton studying carbon storage in the deep ocean in the Iceland Basin. I have always had a keen interest in the Polar Regions as I find them to be fascinating and fragile environments.
