PhD: Deep Magmatic Degassing and the Colorado Uplift, University of Manchester

My research is primarily aimed at developing geochemical tracing tools for GeoEnergy applications. My early research focused on investigating the potential for noble gases and stable isotopes to be used as tracers for CO2 monitoring within CO2 storage sites and as early warning tracers of unplanned CO2 migration. More recently, I have been applying this knowledge to the environmental monitoring of both conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon extraction and geothermal energy provision, whilst maintaining an interest in the geochemical evolution of the Earth's mantle.
