Overview

I studied marine biology at the University of Essex at undergraduate and masters level, with a focus on gas dynamics in the environment and how inferences can be made from the atmosphere about the native biology. My masters thesis focused on determining the origin of methane in extraterrestrial atmospheres by observing the ratio of methane to other hydrocarbons as part of a wider astrobiological project addressing the potential for life on Mars.I studied marine biology at the University of Essex at undergraduate and masters level, with a focus on gas dynamics in the environment and how inferences can be made from the atmosphere about the native biology.
