Staff Profile

Sarah Clancy

Research Assistant



I am an environmental geoscientist working jointly on the ReFINE (Researching Fracking) consortium and UKSGL (UK Shale Gas Landscapes) programme.



I obtained a degree in Geology from Durham University in 2011. Upon graduating I spent several years working as a pore pressure specialist for Ikon Science in Malaysia. In 2015 I began my PhD at Durham University (part funded through the M4ShaleGas consortium), focusing on the potential environmental risks of shale gas extraction using hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’). Specifically my PhD research looked into the potential concerns associated with well pad infrastructure, with regards to public safety and environmental footprint.
