Ann has a BSc in Environmental and Resource Geology (2007) and a PhD in Earth Science (2012) from the University of Manchester. After her PhD, she was a Research Fellow at Aberystwyth University, then Senior Research Fellow the University of Sheffield where she held a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship. In 2022 she moved to the University of Bergen as Associate Professor in Quaternary Geology and Palaeoclimate.
