Matthieu Clog is a lecturer in Earth Sciences at SUERC (since 2015) and is in charge of the Clumped Isotope Laboratory at SUERC. He is interested in the application of clumped isotope techniques to study a variety of geochemical questions, from a combination of lab experiments and natural samples, and in the further development of mass spectrometric techniques to study the distribution of isotopes inside molecules and understand what information is recorded there.
Alex McDonald joined the stable isotope team here at SUERC in April of 2020 after acquiring his degree in chemistry from the University of the West of Scotland. He specifically works in the clumped isotope laboratory with Dr Matthieu Clog carrying out analyses of carbonate samples to determine their temperature of formation and looks forward to the opportunities to come here at SUERC.
Orestis Gazetas is a PhD candidate at University of Glasgow since October 2020, with interests in air pollution, climate change and data science. He aspires to broaden the understanding of methane sources by applying stable and clumped isotope geochemistry and influence positive change in society through his research. Orestis is a keen basketball player, a football fan and a classic literature enthusiast.
