Mr Christian Star Bishop is a postgraduate research student within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

Christian's primary research is seeking to understand the processes that result in the development of ore deposits, particularly critical metals, and energy critical elements. As part of his PhD thesis, he will focus on the Semyenov hydrothermal field, an extinct, ultramafic hosted seafloor massive sulphide deposit.  Pursuing to understand the potential within these deposits, how the ultramafic host affects the system as a whole and the potential for alteration to lead to supergene enrichment.

2019 - 2021: Geo-environmental technician / consultant

2015 – 2019: Integrated masters (MGeol) in Applied and Environmental Geology from the University of Leicester. My fourth-year projects focussed on greenfield exploration at Seljord, Norway.
