Sarah Baker
PhD student


Sarah graduated from the University of Plymouth in 2013 with a first class honours in MGeol Geology, and is particularly interested in the reconstruction and understanding of past climates and environments through the analysis of the geological record. After completing her third year dissertation entitled ‘The Geology of the Isle of Raasay, Inner Hebrides’ which focused on the palaeoenvironment and structural evolution of a section of the island, Sarah decided to continue further down the palaeoenvironmental route, broadening into studying past climates. For her fourth year dissertation she studied the past climatic effects of Milankovitch cycles on Jurassic marine sediments.

Her current PhD research continues this trend, aiming to assess variations in atmospheric concentrations across past oceanic anoxic events, which are thought to have severely disrupted the Earth’s carbon cycle.
