2021 - Present: PhD Student, The Open University
2015 -2020: Integrated Master's in Geology with Planetary Science, The University of Manchester
I am a second year postgraduate student in the Planetary Environments Research Group at the Open University. I am currently working on a geological map of the H11 Discovery quadrangle of Mercury, part of a series of maps aiming to cover Mercury globally at 1:3,000,000 scale, in prepartaion for the BepiColombo mission. I am particuarly interested in the Chaotic terrain within this quadrangle. Additionally, my research concerns impact cratering. I am currently investigating flows around craters, both landslides and impact ejecta flows.
