I am a Principal Teaching Fellow in the Department of Life Sciences. My background is plant sciences and the biotransformation of wood preservatives, but I'm now most actively involved in leading first year teaching on the Biological Sciences BSc degree stream, and in the ongoing review of our first- and second-year curricula.
In first-year Biological Sciences, I convene the Biological Chemistry & Microbiology module, and also teach on the Cell Biology & Genetics and on the Biology of Organisms modules. In the final-year of all Life Sciences degrees, I contribute to our Science Communication module. See the teaching tab for more on these courses, and the teaching tab for more about my contributions to them.
