Teaching Interests

As a field ecologist I am able to share my love for the natural world during field courses and as Head of Zoology, I co-ordinate the level 5 Zoology field course. I also contribute to level 6 Professional Skills in Conservation field course and level 7 Tropical Ecology and Conservation field trip to Borneo.

My teaching research centres around developing interactive methods to support students to increase their performance and develop a critical approach, especially using technology to facilitate and augment learning.
