Research interests

  • Environmental and ecological applications of stable isotopes.
  • NERC Life Sciences Mass Spectrometry Facility (LSMSF).

Additional information

In Autumn 2002 I joined the NERC Life Sciences Mass Spectrometry Facility (hosted by SUERC) as a support researcher. A new position that was created due to increased demand in applications for this facility. The Facility exists to provide access for scientists in biological, environmental and other sciences to training and research facilities, offering an integrated and comprehensive suite of stable isotope techniques and expertise. Collaborative research projects are encouraged, and there is a strong emphasis on the training of visiting workers.

Those interested in using the facility should contact Dr. Jason Newton or myself, to discuss the application of stable isotopes. Suitable projects will then be subject to peer review.

Further information can be found on the NERC Life Sciences Mass Spectrometry Facility web page.
