Dr Stephanie Bates

Technician, University of Bristol

Stephanie Bates works as a research technician in isotope biogeochemistry at the School of Earth Sciences, University of Bristol.

She will be supporting Dr Kate Hendry by measuring silicon isotope ratios in sponge samples for the ChAOS project.

Stephanie has a background in marine geochemistry having previously studied subjects such as foraminiferal trace metals and seawater barium isotope ratios.

In the ChAOS project, silicon isotope data will be gathered using the facilities at the Bristol Isotope Group laboratories, including multicollector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS).
