Miss Emma Robertson
I studied for a BSc in Environmental Earth Science at Aberystwyth University, graduating in 2014. I then worked as a Geo-Environmental Consultant for a private sector consultancy before returning to study for an MSc in Geochemistry, here in St Andrews, in 2017. My academic interests lie in low temperature environmental geochemistry, particularly concerning freshwater systems and the interactions between Earth’s spheres through biogeochemical cycles - impacting both ecosystems and climate.
I am currently working as a Research Assistant in the Geobiology research group, funded by the ERC grant awarded to Mark Claire. The work mainly focuses on the measurement of triple oxygen isotopes in atmospherically derived minerals (sulphates, nitrates and perchlorates) from the Atacama Desert, to constrain paleo-atmospheric composition and potentially palaeorainfall.
