I am so excited to work as a Research Assistant at UCC. I've always wanted to learn about natural science, my favourite subjects being Palaeontology, Biology and Geology. My work and research topics reflect my wide interests; Investigating depositional environments, bone preservation potential and mammalian biomechanics have all been fascinating paths of research. A big motivation of mine is to share my knowledge and experience with others, I was a geological tour guide in Iceland for one year and I now help in delivering workshops about Irish fossils. I plan to partake in PhD research in the near future. My passion has brought me a long way and am always looking to learn more!
