Profile photo 
Upload your profile photo in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Your profile photo in Pure is not linked to your public staff profile. Choose a clear, recent headshot where you are easily recognisable. Your image should be at least 340 by 395 pixels. 

To change your name or prefix title contact Ask HR (opens in new tab)  If you want to update an academic title you'll need to provide evidence e.g. a PhD certificate. The way your name is displayed is automatic and cannot be changed. You can also update your post-nominal letters in Subscribe (opens in a new tab).

Job title 
Raise a request through ServiceNow (opens in a new tab) to change your job title (40 characters maximum) unless you're on the ERE career pathway. If you're on the ERE path you can not change your main job title, but you can request other minor updates through Ask HR (opens in new tab). If you have more than one post only your main job title will display here, but you can add further posts or roles in other sections of your profile.

Research interests (for researchers only) 
Add up to 5 research interests. The first 3 will appear in your staff profile next to your name. The full list will appear on your research page. Keep these brief and focus on the keywords people may use when searching for your work. Use a different line for each one.

In Pure (opens in a new tab), select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading 'Curriculum and research description', select 'Add profile information'. In the dropdown menu, select 'Research interests: use separate lines'.

Contact details 
Add or update your email address, telephone number and postal address in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Use your University email address for your primary email. 

You can link to your Google Scholar, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts through Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’.  In the 'Links' section, use the 'Add link' button.

I am a lecturer in Geology and Geophysics in the School of Ocean and Earth Science working at the interface between environmental geoscience, geophysics, and geotechnics in the marine environment. 

I am interested in a range of topics including solutions to accelerate the green energy transition from offshore renewables, climate change mitigation techniques, and natural greenhouse gas emissions from marine sources.

My main research focus is on climate and human-induced abiotic changes in marine sediments. I develop and apply analytical and numerical modelling techniques at different spatial (grain-core-basin) and temporal scales (seconds to centuries) to explore the behaviour of the non-living part below our oceans. Applications include naturally induced methane emissions from gas hydrates and geological CO2 storage.

Currently, I am also focusing on optimizing the value of geoscience information to reduce the time and costs of offshore sediment investigations, ultimately, to accelerate the green energy transition. I am exploring hybrid physics-based and data-driven solutions for joint processing and interpretation of geophysical and geotechnical data in offshore wind developments.

You can update this in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading and then ‘Curriculum and research description’, select ‘Add profile information’. In the dropdown menu, select - ‘About’.

Write about yourself in the third person. Aim for 100 to 150 words covering the main points about who you are and what you currently do. Clear, simple language is best. You can include specialist or technical terms.

You’ll be able to add details about your research, publications, career and academic history to other sections of your staff profile.
