I am a Senior 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.
In first-year Biological Sciences, I convene and teach on the Biological Chemistry & Microbiology and Cell Biology & Genetics courses. I also teach on the final-year Life Sciences Science Communication course. See the teaching tab for more on these courses, and the teaching++ tab for more about my contributions to them.
