Geophysicist
Jennifer developed an interest in all aspects of topographical and geophysical survey whilst studying for an Undergraduate MSc in Archaeological Science at the University of Bristol. In her early career as an archaeologist she supplemented her knowledge of excavation techniques with data analysis for GPS, Magnetic Gradiometry and Electrical Resistivity. She has a good geological knowledge of the UK having recorded and mapped various types of geological outcrops around Bristol, Northern England and Ireland.
 
Jennifer joined Wessex Archaeology in 2012 as a geophysicist where her main role consists of collecting, processing and interpreting geophysical data. She is experienced in a range of geophysical field survey techniques including magnetic gradiometer (hand-held and cart systems), resistivity, GPR and ERT. She is proficient in Geoscan Geoplot, ArcGIS and AutoCAD software.
 
Recent projects have included survey ahead of major infrastructure and green energy projects, as well as pre-determining housing developments and research projects such as the Perham Down Practice Trenches with Operation Nightingale.
