2016-2020: Maynooth University, Ireland- Biology and Chemistry (BSc Hons.)
2020- Present: PhD Student School of Physical Sciences
I am a PhD Student with AstrobiologyOU, The title of my project is "Biosignature modification in the Oxia Planum region"
During the summers between semesters of my undergraduate degree I developed an interest in planetary science and astrobiology during internships at The University of Kent and The Open University. My research with AstrobiologyOU now looks at the modification of biosignatures at the landing site of the ExoMars rover. I enjoy sharing my work at outreach events and am always happy to talk Mars!
