Geoffrey Pope Building, University of Exeter , Stocker Road, Exeter, EX4 4QD, UK
Office hours: 09:00-17:00 Mon-Fri
In my current role I support the laboratory based teaching for Bioscience and Natural Science modules within the Geoffrey Pope Teaching Labs, ammodating up to 260 students throughout both labs. Working as part of a small team we order, prepare, risk assess, and provide all the material and resources required for practical classes.
I have a background in geology, previously working as a laboratory technician for a geotechnical engineering company before studying Applied Geology at CSM. My main interests include mineral deposit geology and igneous and metamorphic petrology, undertaking my dissertation on the Kennack Gneiss in Cornwall, investigating its enigmatic origin and emplacement into the surrounding Lizard peninsula.
Since graduating I have pursued a career within teaching higher education and science communication, demonstrating on the majority of undergraduate practical classes within CLES at the Cornwall Campus, including field lecturing on Earth Systems Science (GEO1405b), the Isles of Scilly Field Course (GEO2447), Landscape Evolution (GEO2444) and the North Wales Snowdonia Field Course (part of GEO2451).
