Maren Pauly

Personal statement

I have been a part-time lecturer in Plant Sciences at Bath Spa University since October 2019, and also undertake consulting work for a radiocarbon laboratory, Beta Analytic Inc.

Previously, I was a Senior Technical Bid Writer at the Zoological Society of London after undertaking my PhD in Paleontology at the Freie Universitat of Berlin in collaboration with the German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam.

I have undertaken visiting research at the University of Cambridge, WSL Birmensdorf, ETH Zurich and University of Glasgow. My other degrees include a MSc in Environmental Science and BSc in Earth Sciences and Geography, both at the University of Waterloo in Canada.
