I have always had a keen interest in all aspects of natural history, particularly fossils, which led me to study for a BSc in Palaeobiology and Evolution at the University of Portsmouth. I then continued my studies here by completing my MPhil into a purported specimen of pterosaur wing membrane from the Cretaceous of Brazil. During this I also participated in an expedition to the Moroccan Sahara to search for dinosaurs and other fossils.

I now work as a technician in SEES, having previously worked in the biological sciences.
