I am currently studying for a PhD in planetary science. I am obsessed by Mars and my research involves planetary simulation, spectroscopy, instrumentation and space engineering. I am also interested in many other aspects of planetary exploration like astrobiology, human spaceflight, space physiology, robotics and much more.
I am involved as much as I can in science outreach and communication and have several years experience as a secondary science teacher.
I am a keen scuba diver and am a BSAC instructor.
I also read voraciously, devour films, play guitar and piano and sometimes try to sing, and occasionally make frustrated attempts at writing.
