Teaching field geology skills to final year undergraduates in Sardinia

I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant for the courses: Continental Tectonics, Basins Analysis and Surface Processes.

I have also assisted in teaching fieldwork skills, with a focus on sedimentary deposits, to 3rd year undergraduates in Sardinia.  

I also take part as a 'co-learner' for the 1st year course "Global Challenges" within "Imperial Horizons"
