About Me

I am originally from Leeds, but have lived in Manchester and currently Edinburgh for university. I have always had a huge interest in physical sciences, especially those concerned with the environment and the atmosphere.

As well as being interested in physical sciences, I also am a very keen rower. I rowed for all three years at Manchester University and was on the GB talent program for rowing, which led me to take part in the GB trials.

For more information please take a look at my CV (no longer available)


I have graduate from The University of Manchester with a 2.1, having studied BSc(Hons) Envrionmental Science.
