Prior to joining the CDT in 2023, I worked as a Geo-environmental Engineer and Geospatial specialist at Geoinvestigate Ltd, where I contributed to updating and expanding the company’s assessment capabilities, including more precise mine shaft risk mapping and UAV assisted slope stability assessment. Before transitioning into industry, I graduated from the University of Leicester with an integrated Masters in Geology. My thesis focused on the reassessment of the Wealden Formation through the generation of a high-resolution digital cliff exposure, allowing for a uniform approach to geological mapping. I have also participated in multiple other geospatial research projects, for instance, a collaboration between the Open University and European Space Agency. This focused on developing a machine learning algorithm for the categorisation of Martian imagery.


At the CDT, my research will address the range of challenges associated with automated big data fusions, with the aim of bringing the National Geospatial Database into the third dimension. This project aims to amalgamate previous studies and provide new insights into geospatial data processing, analysis, and visualisation.
