Dr. Liam Bullock is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, specialising in geochemistry, petrology and mineralogy. He completed his PhD at Keele University in 2015, where he worked on the evolution of rhyolitic lavas in the Aeolian Islands, Italy. After spending a year working for a UK gold exploration company with an Ethiopian concession site, Liam started his first post-doc position at the University of Aberdeen, investigating critical trace elements in the sedimentary environment. Liam joined the NERC Greenhouse Gas Removal programme in 2018 at the University of Southampton, determining the feasibility of mine waste materials for CO2 sequestration. He joined Oxford as part of the same project.

Greenhouse Gas Removal by Enhanced Weathering Project
Weathering of rocks at the Earth’s surface is a natural process that converts atmospheric CO2 into benign forms of carbon, including carbonate minerals. This project aims to speed up this process to reduce levels of CO2 in the atmosphere.
