I teach mapping skills using Adobe Illustrator software to final year Geologists (GEOL3001) and first year Geographers (GGH1202/GGP1207). I have taught one-off sessions on Poster Design and Graphic Design.
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 and Western Ireland. 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.
