I am currently a researcher at the Universtiy of Leeds, studying the application of knowledge gained in the atmospheric sciences to problems in cryobiology. Prior to starting my current position I obtained an MChem from the University of Durham and a PhD from the University of Leeds. During my PhD I investigated heterogeneous ice nucleation from a fundamental perspective with a view to improving understanding of the process in the atmosphere. I also have interests in the cryobiological aspects of nucleation and crystalliation, and in the physical properties of water and ice in general.
