I completed my MSCi in Environmental Geoscience at Imperial College London, graduating in 2016. During this time, my research interests were mainly focussed in geochemistry, completing both my BSc and MSCi projects in the area. I completed my MSCi project with Mark Sephton and Jon Watson, looking the biodegradation of oils in the Wessex Basin. I found looking at the geochemistry of oil particularly interesting and is something I would like to continue in the future. My BSc project looked a the natural and anthropogenic cycling of cadmium in aqueous environments, working with Mark Rehkamper and Tina van de Flierdt.
