He holds a PhD from Aberystwyth University which focused on the late-glacial history of the Rhinogydd in North Wales and has worked on various palaeoecological research projects in Wales and further afield in eastern Africa. Patrick is experienced in a range of palaeoenvironmental techniques, including pollen, diatom and geochemical analysis of sediment cores and geomorphological mapping.
