Dr Carol Cotterill
Marine and Coastal Geoscientist (UK)

Carol initially trained as a theatre designer, specialising in lighting design, and the effect of colour on the human emotions. However, a rather convoluted path led to re-training as a geoscientist, and working for the British Geological Survey. She now works on many different aspects of palaeoclimate work, habitat mapping and geomorphological interpretations of past landscapes and environments at a national and international level.
