What inspires you?

Growing up in Cornwall you’re pretty close to it most of the time.

Previous Activity

Artist, sculptor, maker, glaciology fieldwork and research in the Arctic and Himalayas.

Why did you choose Docotoral Research?

Following my insatiable curiosity.

Why did you choose a CENTA Studentship?

Well-rounded training, and the added benefits and support from the studentship.

What are your future plans

It will hopefully give me the experience to continue high-latitude and high-altitude glacial research in the future.
