Rockwatch Management Committee
I could say I have geology in my blood; my father was a geologist and I have followed in his footsteps.
I studied geology in London, followed by Aberystwyth, which provided a world of geological contrast from the building stone trails, museums, and Crystal Palace dinosaurs of the city to the dramatic Palaeozoic cliffs and mountains of mid Wales.
I am a palaeontologist working with Natural England, a government organisation responsible for conserving some of England’s most important geology. That’s when I met Mary Anning (see picture) when we celebrated the establishment of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.
