My early post- doctoral years were spent working in the nuclear industry for Rolls Royce and Associates on the Naval Nuclear Submarine Programme. After 11 years I took a career break to care full-time for my growing family of three children. Following an absence of 14 years, I re-entered the workplace as a part-time research technician with the Geochronology Group in the Department of Earth Science (as it was then called).

In 2008 I was awarded a Daphne Jackson Fellowship which funded my retraining and research in Earth Sciences. Bench fees were provided from an Alan Tetlow Memorial Bursary which was awarded by the Water Science Forum of the Royal Society of Chemistry. My research on green rust and zero-valent iron has produced unique and interesting data which has just been submitted for publication in the Journal of Environmental Technology.

Although I have recently retired early from my job as a part-time technician, I am looking forward to further research collaborations with the Green Rust team.

I am currently the Honorary Secretary for the Central Yorkshire Section of the Royal Society of Chemistry
