Professional biography

I am a project officer in the Geochemistry Group at the Open University.  I run the quadrupole ICP-MS instrument, as well as the clean laboratory facilities.  In the group, we analyse a variety of geological and environmental samples for both trace element and isotopic composition (isotopes include Li, Mg, Cr, Fe, Rb, Sr, Mo, Te, Nd, Sm, Re, Os, Pb, Th, U)

We welcome any enquiries relating to commercial analyses or academic collaborations.  Please get in touch by email for further information.
