Steven Rogers

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 have since gained a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education and this year aim to continue my pedagogic journey by undertaking a part time MA in Learning & Teaching in Higher Education. My research interests include carbonate sedimentology (and associated palaeontology), structural geology and pedagogy within the Earth Sciences.

I teach on several undergraduate modules at all levels and also supervise postgraduate MSc projects. I currently hold the role of Examinations officer for all Geology, Geoscience and MGeoscience courses. I am deputy Equality and Diversity Champion (incl. Athena Swan) for the School of Geography, Geology and the Environment. I also organise the Geography, Geology and Environment Seminar Series.

I am a member of the Basin Dynamics Research Group (BDRG) here at Keele and I am affiliated to The Geological Society of London (Fellow), The Linnaean Society of London (Fellow) and The Higher Education Academy (Fellow).
