I am a senior lecturer in Marine Geophysics here at the School of Ocean Sciences. I graduated from the University of Leicester in 1986 with a degree in Geology with Geophysics and went on from there to complete the Masters course in Marine Geotechnics at SOS. After this, I worked as a Research Assistant on two EU funded research projects and resulting from this was my PhD thesis entitled, 'Measurement and analysis of shear wave velocity in marine sediments', completed in 1992. I was then appointed as a Research Officer in Marine Geophysics, before being promoted to lecturer in 2001 and my present position in 2012.
