I am a third year PhD student on the University of Southampton INSPIRE DTP program. I am based at the Natural History Museum London as part of the Deep-Sea Systematics and Ecology research group, and my work focuses on investigating the diversity and evolution of benthic annelid worm communities in the Southern ocean, particularly in areas covered or recently covered by ice. I love everything marine and have taken part in deep-sea oceanographic cruises in the central Pacific Ocean, but have yet to visit anywhere polar, which is a big bucket list item!

I am very excited to join UKPN to get involved with and get to know the broader polar science community!
