Liam Bullock received his degree in Geology and Geography (Dual Honours) from Keele University (UK) in July 2009. He subsequently worked as an Environmental Management intern during the autumn and winter of 2009, before volunteering for 6 months at the CIIV Exchange and Research in Volcanology programme at the University of Colima, Mexico, in early 2010. This experience in active volcano monitoring, fieldwork and data acquisition led to the initiation of his doctorate degree in Earth Sciences at Keele University (2010-2014), investigating silicic volcanism in the Aeolian Islands, Italy. Following his successful viva in July 2014, Liam spent 12 months working for a gold exploration company, hosted in the UK, with a concession site in western Ethiopia. Liam returned to academia in the autumn of 2015, as a postdoctoral researcher on the UK NERC-funded Tellurium and Selenium Cycling and Supply (TeaSe) project at the University of Aberdeen, part of the Security of Supply Minerals programme. In June 2018, Liam joined the UK NERC-funded Greenhouse Gas Removal by Enhanced Weathering (GGREW) project as a postdoctoral researcher at the Universities of Southampton and Oxford. In January 2022, Liam started the Developing enhanced weathering methods in mine tailings for CO2 sequestration (DETAILS) Project at GEO3BCN-CSIC, after being awarded funding through the H2020-EU.1.3.2. grant scheme. Despite the variation in geological themes, a specialisation in geochemistry has developed from these career stages.
