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 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.
