From 2000 to 2020; Member of the Society of Cartographers; Treasurer and Bulletin Subscriptions Manager between 2010 and it's closure.
I teach mapping skills and cartographic design using Digimap and Adobe Illustrator software to first year Geographers (GGH1202/GGP1207) and geologists (GEOL1006). I support Shaun Lewin's QGIS teaching to undergraduates and MSc Planning postgraduates
In addition to my cartographic input, I have helped out on various Geography and Environmental Science fieldtrips. In recent years, residential trips have been to Western Australia, Brittany, Belize, the Pacific North West of the USA. My role on these trips is mostly as a driver, photographer, IT technician and a general helper, looking after the equipment and making sure the trip runs smoothly.
