School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (Faculty of Science and Engineering)

Role

I am an academic with a broad interest in past environmental change and how this can help us understand how past societies influenced and shaped their surroundings.  Understanding the past offers insights into possible futures for people/environment relationships.  This knowledge is also applied to consider contemporary issues in landscape management, such as heritage management and conservation of nationally and internationally important habitats.  I work closely with a range of organisations such as National Park Authorities and archaeological consultancies, as well as with a network of international scholars. 

My role at Plymouth University is to provide a broad-based education to undergraduate and postgraduate students to promote geographical thinking and spatial literacy.  This is informed by my research expertise and interests, and delivered through formal lecture classes, practical workshops, tutorial sessions and field-based teaching ranging from one-day local excursions to overseas residential field classes.  In addition to my teaching I am responsible for marketing activities for the Geography programmes.

Qualifications

I graduated in 1996 with a BSc (Hons) Degree in Geography from Durham University, and spent the subsequent year working on a variety of projects in the broad Quaternary Environmental change area.  This included excavation of interglacial sediments along the line of the A13 extension near Purfleet, opening sections of till on the Northumberland coast and coring peat sequence on the North York Moors.  I subsequently completed an interdisciplinary PhD at Exeter University, drawing on both archaeological and geographical techniques to assess the value and importance of fluvial sediments for archaeological and environmental reconstruction.

I joined Plymouth University as Lecturer in GIS in 2006 after five years as a Research Fellow then Lecturer in both Geography and Archaeology at Exeter University.  I was promoted to Associate Professor (Reader) in Geospatial Information in 2012.  I have served as an external examiner for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes at Birmingham University and Royal Holloway University of London.

Teaching interests

My teaching supports two key areas of the student learning experience at Plymouth: (i) the development of GIS skills and spatial literacy, and (ii) palaeoecology, environmental change and archaeology

My teaching is divided between formal taught classes, practical skills development in the physical geography and IT labs, and fieldwork.  I have coordinated local field teaching (for example collecting air temperature data around Plymouth city centre for use within GIS labs, excursions to Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor to explore upland environmental change) and international residential field trips to Iceland and western Ireland.

Research interests

My current reseaarch themes fall into three main areas: (1) Development of pollen-landscape calibration datasets for the quantification of past land cover, and application to archaeology, nature conservation and climate change research (see also the Leverhulme Trust-funded Deforesting Europe project webpages); (2) Human-environment relationships in past societies, with a particular focus on prehistoric landscapes; and (3) Sustainable conservation and management of the archaeological and palaeoecological resource including involvement in the IUCN peatlands programme. In addition I have been collaborating on research into GIS pedagogy in Higher Education, and the integration of GIS into schools in the UK.

Grants & contracts

I have sought funding for my research from a variety of sources, including research councils (e.g. NERC/AHRC), other prestigous national funding agencies (Leverhulme Trust/British Academy/English Heritage) and 'third stream' funders such as National Park Authorities. My research income has helped support and develop the careers of various undergraduate Research Assistants, PhD students and Post-doctoral fellows, as well as allowed me to explore and develop my personal and collaborative research agendas.
