Some of the most important influences on me and my career have been my teachers and lecturers. I appreciate how vital it is to engage and enthuse students and show them the opportunities available in geology, palaeontology and science in general.

Here are the courses I’ve been involved with (module codes are University of Leicester):

Teaching Fellow (2017/2018):

GL1103 – Introduction to Palaeobiology

GL3111 – Diversity and Evolution of Vertebrates


Employed as Teaching Fellow for 2016/2017. Designed and gave lectures, practical sessions, coursework and examinations as well as all staff responsibilities during my employment.

Guest Lecturer:
