Prior to joining the firm, Joe graduated from Durham University in 2020 with a first-class bachelor’s degree in geophysics with geology, being awarded the BGA prize for best geophysics performance and the Chevron UK award for his performance in petroleum-related geophysics.
Subsequently, Joe completed a masters of science by research in geophysics at Durham.
