Biography

I initially arrived at Keele as an undergrad in 2005, enrolled on the single honours Earth System Science degree. Within two years I transferred to the integrated Masters course; MGeoscience. I graduated in 2009. Later that year I was appointed to a dual role at Keele: a Teaching Fellow in Geology and PhD student. My PhD focused on a population of carbonate mounds (from the Cantabrian Mountains, Spain) investigating their palaeoecology, sedimentation, geochemistry and ultimately, formation. I completed my PhD in 2014 and graduated the following year.

I have since gained a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education and I am currently undertaking a part time MA in Learning & Teaching in Higher Education. I have become increasingly involved in education, scholarly and pedagogic pursuits; I am particularly interested in co-production and immersive learning. To this end I have recently led on the creation and launch of a school wide undergraduate research programme (the GGE-UROP) and an online, peer reviewed journal, which focusses on the publication of work and scholarly training of undergraduate and postgraduate students (The Student Journal of Natural Sciences).

I teach on multiple undergraduate modules at all levels and supervise postgraduate MSc projects. I currently hold the role of Director of Learning and Teaching for the school of Geography, Geology and the Environment. I am Examinations officer for all Geology, Geoscience and MGeoscience courses. I am the schools Senior Tutor and Student Voice Champion. I have previously held the role of deputy Equality and Diversity Champion (incl. Athena Swan) for the School of Geography, Geology and the Environment and organised the Geography, Geology and Environment Seminar Series.

I am a member of the Geography, Geology and Environment Education Cluster and affiliate to the Basin Dynamics Research Group (BDRG) here at Keele. I am a fellow of The Linnaean Society of London (Fellow) and The Higher Education Academy (Fellow).
