Hi guys! I am a Geology student from the University of Plymouth beginning his 3rd and final year. I have a specific interest in engineering geology and in total I've been studying earth sciences for over 5 years now (Including A Level) and am currently aiming towards a 2:1.

During my three years at university I have covered a wide range of topics in detail, the following is just a sample of the topics I can teach; if a topic you'd like to learn about is not listed below don't hesitate to ask me about it!

  • Igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary petrology
  • Sedimentology (E.g sedimentary structures, environments etc.)
  • Geophysics (Different methods including - SP, Resistivity, Magnetic and Electromagnetic)
  • Volcanology
  • Geological Mapping (I have just returned from a month long mapping project in the Isle of Skye, and have previous experience mapping in northern Spain!) -Structural Geology (Faults, Folds and other deformations!)

Listed below you will find my education history and experience in the field of geology/earth sciences.
