I am in charge of running and maintaining the stable isotope facility for the Radiocarbon Laboratory at SUERC, in support of both commercial work and collaborative research.
δ13C, δ15N, and δ34S analyses are undertaken on archaeological bone collagen samples using a Thermo Scientific Delta V IRMS coupled to a Costech 4010 EA. Most other radiocarbon CO2 gas samples are run on either a VG SIRA 11 or a VG Isotech Optima dual-inlet IRMS.
Additionally, I provide assistance running the graphite lines as and when the Radiocarbon Lab requires.
Collaborative research and PhD project proposals are always welcome. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any queries.
