Teaching

I am a part-time Teaching Associate at the University of Nottingham. I teach on modules across undergraduate and postgraduate levels, mainly on biogeography, GIS, statistics, and on techniques-based residential field courses. I am also a personal tutor.

 

My involvement with Operation Wallacea

I supervised and tutored multiple dissertation students’ projects for the 2015 fieldwork season in Madagascar for Operation Wallacea, and gave lectures. I’ll be repeating this role in 2016. Visit my Opwall page.
