I’m a postgraduate student currently studying the MSc Applied Environmental Geology at Cardiff University. Once the course is finished I’d like to get into geotechnical or geoenvironmental work.
Before going back to full time study I worked in IT as a server administrator. I’ve found there’s a lot of useful IT skills that cross over into geoscience. So I want to make the most of merging these topics in any future job.
At the moment I’m working on my thesis during the summer. I’m looking at using photogrammetry from a small consumer drone to construct a model of spoil tips to measure their volume.
I’ll be using the blog to share any useful instructions or information about my thesis topic and the course’s themes.
