Research Fellow



I recently joined the University of Aberdeen in April 2023 as a Research Fellow in the School of Biological Sciences. 

I graduated with my Bachelor of Science (BSc) from the University of Aberdeen in 2013 where I studied Geography. Throughout my time as an Undergraduate student I also developed skills in areas within Chemistry and Geology. 

I then worked for six years at the James Hutton Institute where I picked up an array of skills which allowed me to do my PhD in collaboration with Cranfield University. I graduated from Cranfield in 2019 with my PhD entitled "The Application of Digital Soil Mapping to improve the resolution of national soil properties across Great Britain". 

Before coming back to the University, I have worked in a number of different areas acquiring skills which can be versatile in academia, commercial and governmental organisations.

My main strengths lie in general soil science knowledge, utilising Geographical Information System programmes (GIS), mathematical modelling techniques such as Boosted Regression Trees (BRTS) and statistical analyses.
