I am a seismologist and Lecturer in Geophysics at the School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds, studying the inside of the Earth using observations and simulations of seismic waves emitted by earthquakes.

The core-mantle boundary region is where mantle plumes may originate, tectonic slabs terminate and the rocky mantle and liquid iron outer core meet. My research involves using seismic observations, mineral physical predictions and geodynamic simulations to try and better understand this poorly-known part of the deep Earth. So far my research has involved making measurements of seismic anisotropy and forward modelling the seismic wavefield in complicated media. I have also investigated microseismicity in rifting regions such as Iceland and Ethiopia, and studied melting processes beneath mid-ocean ridges.
