Isotope geochemistry - Oceanography
I work within the Imperial MAGIC group and I am part of the Grantham Institutes doctoral training program: Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet.
Project title: A journey from the modern ocean to the past and into the future - how does seawater acquire its chemical fingerprint?
My project aims to use a range of materials from the North Atlantic to gain new insight into the biogechemical cycle of Neodymium. Neodymium isotopes have been used extensively to reconstruct past water mass configuration and ocean circulation. Still, our understanding of exactly how seawater acquires its Nd fingerprint is lacking.
