Edward Fleming received his BSc (Hons) from the University of Southampton in 2009 and PhD from the University of Birmingham in 2014. His PhD focused on reconstructing the palaeogeography and palaeoenvironments of Neoproterozoic “Snowball Earth” diamictites in NE Svalbard through sedimentological, structural and magnetic fabric analysis.
He carried out extensive fieldwork in East Greenland and Svalbard, working on a wide-range of sediments ranging in age from Neoproterozoic to modern. During this research, he analysed magnetic fabrics to investigate depositional and deformational processes in glacial sediments.
Edward joined CASP in March 2014 as a sedimentologist working on the Barents Shelf Provenance Project.
