Rehemat Bhatia (Pal(a)eoPERCS Funding Officer)

I am a micropalaeontologist and geochemist by training. I did my undergrad at Royal Holloway (University of London) and my PhD at University College London. My doctoral and subsequent postdoctoral research focused on using trace element and isotope geochemistry of Paleocene, Eocene and Miocene planktonic foraminifera to understand more about their responses to dramatic climate change and disentangling their palaeoecologies. I now work outside of academia, but I still keep geoscience in my life through community service endeavours (like Pal(a)eoPERCS) and doing science outreach in my spare time. On the Pal(a)eoPERCS Committee I co-ordinate our funding applications and identify financial support avenues. I am also the Co-Chair of Member Events for the Earth Science Women’s Network.
