Untouched Landscapes

Geology has always been a great passion of mine, ever since I was little I loved to visit the cliffs along the coastline of Norfolk, collecting fossils found within the clay or large clasts of a foreign origin within the cliffs themselves. I am currently studying geology at the University of Portsmouth and have studied specialised units with regards to volcanology and seismology, giving me a detailed insight in to the many processes which lead to the formation of these volcanic systems.

Living in the countryside, I have always been surrounded by nature, exploring the vast amounts of forests and untouched landscape, exploring every new avenue I could find. Hiking and being outdoors is where I’d like to spend most of my time, be it a leisurely walk with the family through the countryside or geological mapping on the Isle of Mull found within the Outer Hebrides, Scotland.

The reason I chose to work in the cave, is primarily the fascination of the geology that lead to its formation and the bewildering scale to these systems and also being able to give people an insight in to the geology, so that they too can be in awe of these outstanding processes.
