About me

I am interested in the application of GIS to address real world problems. I have participated in a number of multidisciplinary teams - providing the specialist knowledge and skills to integrate a 'spatial view'  into projects.

I am very enthusiastic about teaching GIS, and contribute to a range of modules, across all levels, within the Department of Geography and Environmental Management.

I am particularly interested in the pedagogy of subjects with a strong technical emphasis as well as teaching and learning approaches to dispositional and professional development. I have been a UWE Learning and Teaching Fellow, and was  departmental Teacher of the Year a few years ago. I am working toward my Senior Felowship of HEA, and am currently completing a doctorate in education.

I lead and deliver the following modules: GIS and Remote Sensing Applications (3), Introduction to Applied GIS (M), and Research in Context (M).

Area of expertise

I enjoy working across a range of disciplines, and have participated in research ranging from environmental management to urban planning to health, and have supported student work in a number of fields, from the spatial economics of the Bristol housing market, to the epidemiology of malaria in Kenya, to the logistics of waste management in the buroughs of greater London. More recently I have contributed to research projects associated with climate change focussing on future floods, droughts and enhancing resilience.
