Grace studied the undergraduate MEarthSci degree in Earth Sciences at the University of Oxford and graduated in 2017 before starting a DPhil within the NERC Environmental Research Doctoral Training Programme in the same year.
Grace's DPhil project focusses on the timing of large-scale change in volcanic systems, with a particular focus on the ends of volcanic eruptions. The timing and processes governing the end of eruption are poorly understood despite having implications for volcanic hazard.
Using vibration data, along with other sensor time-series from volcanic study sites, Grace is undertaking research into the use of novelty detection and other machine learning methods for characterising eruption data.
Grace is also supervised by volcanologists Prof. David Pyle and Prof. Tamsin Mather, based in the Volcanology group in the Department of Earth Sciences, and is a member of University College, Oxford.
