I am a doctoral student at the University of Tübingen in Germany where I am researching solute transport in sedimentary structures. My work is supervised by Olaf A. Cirpka and Claus Haslauer, with co-supervision from Martin Ross from the University of Waterloo, Canada.
I completed my MSc in Applied & Environmental Geoscience (hydrogeology major) at the University of Tübingen in 2015 and the title of my master's thesis was “Characterising sediment sources and fluxes in the Steinlach Catchment using heavy metals”.
Prior to the MSc studies I worked in environmental consultancy for seven years in New Zealand and Australia. My undergraduate studies were at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, where I gained bachelors degrees in arts (geography) and music (vocal performance).
I am always interested in meeting people who do similar things to me, or want to apply these concepts somewhere else. When I am not being confused by my work I enjoy playing music, travelling and eating.
