School of Science, Engineering and Environment
Teaching Fellow and Specialist Technician in Environmental Management & Conservation
I am an experienced academic support professional with a Postgraduate Certificate focused in Environmental Management from The Open University and a degree in Zoology and Conservation from The University of Wales Bangor.
I Joined the University in 2017 as a Specialist Technician in Wildlife, Environment and Geography. Having previously worked for over 10 years at both the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University I have extensive research experience in environmental and biological sciences with a focus on soil interactions and grassland restoration. My work as a field biologist has taken me to different climates to study ecology, from Tropical rainforests to our more temperate climate.
Since joining Salford University, I have successfully set up and manage a suite of environmental labs in the Cockcroft building used for teaching, research and enterprise studies for environmental based projects. My technical background has given me a wealth of ‘real world’ experience, professional skills and knowledge in the field of environmental science which I bring to my teaching of a range of environmental and wildlife modules.
My teaching ranges across the Geography and Wildlife programs delivering modules from the Foundation Year Environmental Conservation module, 1st year Environmental resources module to master’s level modules such as Environmental Pollution & Remediation. I supervise both undergraduate and postgraduate (MSc) research students.
