Mr Finnigan Illsley-Kemp is Postgraduate research student within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

I currently conduct research into the seismicity associated with volcanic rifting in the Danakil depression, Afar, and the role that this plays in continental break up.

Through 2010-2014 I studied for an MSci degree in geophysics at Imperial College London. For my final research project I conducted a receiver function analysis of teleseismic activity in southeast Canada in order to determine bulk crustal properties for the region, and in particular for the Precambrian crust.
