Summary

Mike is a lecturer in Earth system science who contributes to both geography and geology teaching programmes. He is also Convenor of the Hull Geochemistry and Geobiology (HuGG) research group. He is mostly interested in the environmental and climate records contained in the skeletons of marine plankton, in stalagmites and in freshwater limestones. Mike can often be found doing ocean physics in the morning, solution chemistry at noon and microbial ecology by evening while chasing a single idea! He initially joined Hull as a research fellow, part-funded by Research Councils UK. Previously he spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Utrecht.
