PhD student in Geophysics at the University of Oxford
I'm a self-taught programmer, experienced in scientific programming, and eager to learn more about web development and software engineering.
My research focuses on modelling the evolution of continental margins, primarily using Python and Matlab.
Currently, I am working on modelling the formation of volcanic features on magma-rich margins using flexure and process-oriented gravity. In December 2016, this work was presented at the AGU Fall Meeting. More information about my research can be found at my Earth Sciences departmental homepage.
I have been involved in tutorial teaching and demonstrating while at Oxford. For the first two years of my Ph.D. I held an Earth Sciences lectureship at Worcester College with weekly teaching responsibilities for mathematics and geophysics tutorials. I have also demonstrated a Software Carpentry course for new PhD students.
I'm passionate about outreach and science communication. Over the past few years, I have co-organised an annual visit for a local Primary School to experience a day in the life of a geologist at University. I tweet about these actvities and more on my science-specific twitter account @EarthRebecca.
