My PhD sets out to explore the impacts of human activity and climate change on Lake Loktak, the largest freshwater lake in Northeast India. In particular I will investigate the effects of aquaculture and pesticide use through time. Using stable isotope geochemistry and algal pigment records, amongst other measures, I will reconstruct a timeline of human activity and biological impacts at the lake. This research will be used to inform local communities and policy makers, providing insight which will be beneficial for both conservation and management.
Prior to starting my PhD at Nottingham, I undertook my undergraduate degree in Geography and Geology (BSc) at the University of Aberdeen. My final year projects included a paleoecological reconstruction of human activity and climate change in Greenland and a separate investigation into modelling microplastic dispersion in rivers. I then took a year out from academia to work in the energy industry as a geologist. Following this, I went on to complete a Masters (MRes) in Ecosystem and Environmental Change at Imperial College London. Here, my research focused primarily on the impacts of pesticides in English rivers.
