New PhD Student
(8 December 2017)
DGC would like to welcome Bryony Rogers who has recently started as a new NERC IAPETUS CASE funded student, partnered with the British Geological Survey (BGS).
Bryony is based in the Durham University Archaeology dept. but will be working in the Arthur Holmes Isotope Geology labs (Durham Geochemistry Centre) with Geoff Nowell over the next three years. Bryony’s project will be to work on increasing the temporal resolution of animal movements through a comparative study of LA and microdrilling for Sr-isotope profiling of herbivore teeth. This project reinforces the already close collaboration between DGC and Dr Janet Montgomery in Archaeology on developing micro drilling methods that provide the highest possible spatial and temporal resolution Sr isotope data for human and animal tooth enamel. More details of Bryony’s project can be found here.
