I teach across the undergraduate Physical Geography and Environmental Science degrees, and I am the also the admissions tutor for these courses. In year 1 I teach the introductory Physical Geography module “Evolution of the Earth System” to all Geography and Environmental Science students. I teach the optional “Introduction to Past Global Climate changes” (Palaeoclimates) in year 2. In year 3 I am lucky to be able to deliver field teaching on dryland landscape processes on our “California Drylands” residential fieldclass in the Mojave Desert. I also teach a third year specialism module “African Drylands” which is concerned with the landscapes ecologies and recent (geological) history of the African deserts. This research-led module is closely linked to many aspects of my research.
