After a degree in geology-geophysics from Durham (UK) and a doctorate at Oxford in tectonics and geodynamics, I spent eight years at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in California. There, I continued my research interests of lithospheric flexure involving the analysis of shipboard gravity and bathymetry and the construction of satellite-derived geoid and gravity fields. As part of the GEBCO project, I worked on generating gridded depth databases from ocean echo-soundings and contours. I also participated in a nine sea-going research cruises and worked in the SIO Geological Data Centre. 

At Lamont, I am part of the IEDA geoinformatics group, working at the intersection of geoscience data and technology. In addition to being the GeoPRISMS Data Portal Manager, I work on the development of the GeoMapApp data tool, and help with the group's outreach efforts including mentoring summer interns. I have also worked on providing content for the EarthObserver and PolarExplorer:Sea-Level apps. I interact with educators at all levels and earned a masters degree in education from Teachers College to help inform those conversations.
