I am a budding post-graduate working in geochemistry. My current project is focusing on palaeoecological and palaeoenvironmental reconstruction of a group of microbialites (stromatolites, thrombolites, etc.) from the Nama Group in Southern Namibia/South Africa. I love being able to combine my geology knowledge with my background in ecology and doing such palaeoscientific work is the perfect marriage of those fields.
