Jacob joined Keele as a postgraduate student in September, 2020, working on a project supervised by Dr Alix Cage and focusing on a multiproxy investigation of the palaeoenvironmental history of the Celtic Sea. He has since taken on a research technician role as part of the International Ocean Discovery Programme Expedition 382, in which he is involved in producing a novel tephrochronology for the Scotia Sea region of the Southern Ocean. Prior to Keele, Jacob graduated Durham University in 2018 with an MSc in Earth Sciences.

Research interests include past environmental change, particularly what might be learnt regarding the Quaternary period from proxies such as foraminifera diversity and X-ray fluorescence, and the applications of cryptotephrochronology to these records.
