I joined The Open University in 1995, where I currently work as a Senior Research Fellow and Head of the Earth Sciences Discipline. I am a geochemist with a particular interest in radiogenic and heavy-stable isotope geochemistry, and in the development of novel techniques and their to application to problems of global palaeoenvironmental change. I am also the Department's University Business Fellow with the London Technology Network (LTN), where my role is to help promote the research-based entrepreneurial activities of my colleagues.
Please do get in touch if you'd like to come to the Department of Environment, Earth and Ecosystems to carry out research as a PhD student, a post-doctoral worker or a visiting academic, either with me or with any of my colleagues. Prospective PhD projects that are eligible for funding in 2012 include:
Tellurium isotope fractionation in the oceans (Supervisors: Manuela Fehr / Anthony Cohen / Ian Parkinson).
A multi-proxy isotope approach to reconstructing seawater oxygenation (Supervisors: Anthony Cohen / Alex Dickson / Angela Coe / Manuela Fehr).
