About

I hold an MSc in Communicating Science (Disctinction) and a First Class Honours degree in Anthropology and Astronomy and have extensive experience of teaching both adult and traditional learners both in the community and on campus and particularly enjoyed my time sharing knowledge with others.

I have also been involved in running Field Schools in both the United States and Europe, directing the 2006 Glamorgan Astronomy and Anthropology Field School, giving Glamorgan students an opportunity to visit a number of important astronomical and anthropological sites based in the American South-west.

My current post has allowed me to continue my association with students and I very much enjoy the interaction the job allows.

On a more personal level I enjoy reading and exploring big landscapes and am also a keen amateur geologist.
