Current positions

Lecturer in Climate Change and Sustainability


My academic career started with a BSc in Biology, I then undertook an MSc in Environmental Forestry followed by a PhD in Carbon Storage in Orchards.  The focus of my research was to quantify the carbon emissions associated within the UK apple supply chain and I used a mixture of field data and carbon footprint analysis.

I have a strong interest in the natural world; habitats, ecosystems and how they interact, particularly in the face of a changing climate.  I have practical experience working with the Rivers Trusts in Wales on river and habitat improvement schemes and have five years’ experience as a post-doctoral researcher on photovoltaics.  This experience has given me a strong understanding of the problems that the natural world faces due to a changing climate and knowledge of the potential options to mitigate them.

I have contributed to a number of international conferences and won the poster prize for dye-sensitised solar cells at HOPV-19 in Rome, May 2019.  My research has also contributed to a patent for Low Temperature Platinisation for Dye-Sensitised Solar Cells.

During my career, I have and continue to be a STEM Ambassador, running exciting and interactive workshops for schools and community groups.  I developed a science curriculum for a SEN college and believe that communicating science in an engaging and inclusive manner is highly important.

Areas of research

Carbon Sequestration, Climate Change, Sustainability, Environment, Ecosystems, Renewable Energy


Due to the interdisciplinary nature of my background, I teach across a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules, from consultancy to mitigating climate change, resource security and renewable energy technologies.  My teaching is research-led and hands-on, with a focus on student enjoyment and engagement.  I run a number of domestic field trips to look at sustainability and hands-on carbon management within the UK.

I am the module leader of Level 6 module Mitigating Climate Change and Level 7 module Resource Security.

I also teach on Earth Surface Processes, Sustainability and Environment, Applied Skills and Field Course, Monitoring Environmental Change, Research in Action, Contemporary Issues in Sustainability and supervise a number of dissertation students (Undergraduate and MSc)
