Breaking the Ice Ceiling
I am an Earth Scientist interested in how the Earth works. My research focuses on mountain building and how the Earth’s crust deforms as a result of natural and anthropogenic processes. I am a director of Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage, and currently advise and work on several Net Zero projects linking across the academic, industry, policy interface. Other research interests are investigating uncertainties and human biases in subjective data interpretation and links between society and science.
In 2020 I applied for and was accepted on Homeward Bound a global initiative to increase the influence and impact of women leading with a STEMM background in making decisions that shape the future of our planet. I will be part of TeamHB6. In March 2021 I joined 100 other women from around the globe on a 12 month leadership programme culminating with a journey to Antarctica in 2022, global pandemic allowing. I want to use the opportunity to elevate women in STEMM and their active leadership in making positive World change.
