Student Profile(s)

Emma Lewington

The department has a wide range of expertise which meant that there were lots of interesting areas to pick from when selecting dissertation projects. The field course was also a huge bonus and I really enjoyed spending the summer studying in Svalbard, being able to see the environments and processes that I had learnt about and doing fieldwork in beautiful locations.
