As an undergraduate I studied BSc Environmental Earth Science at Aberystwyth University graduating with first class hons in 2016. I then continued at Aberystwyth University, studying MSc Environmental Monitoring and Analysis, with the course focusing on environmental geochemistry, contaminated land and remediation strategies, whilst also improving my skills in field work, laboratory work and data analysis and interpretation.

There is around 66,000 hectares of Brownfield land in the UK, with the UK government wishing for 60% of new builds to be on Brownfield sites. Brownfield land can be contaminated by previous activities, such as former gasworks sites, where persistent organic pollutants (POP) such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) can be created through incomplete combustion of organic materials. Many PAHs are mutagenic and carcinogenic, and consequently a risk to human health. While there have been studies on dermal bioavailability of pure compounds, the effect of soil physico-chemical properties on dermal absorption of contaminants is poorly understood resulting in overly conservative risk assessments. As a result, the aims of this project are:
