He completed a B.Sc. in Geological Sciences at the University of Leeds (2007) and a M.Sc. in Micropalaeontology at University College London (2008). His Palynology based M.Sc. project focused on improving biostratigraphic resolution around the Jurassic/Triassic boundary at Kuhjoch, Austria, a candidate GSSP section at the time.
