Teaching

As a full-time academic, teaching is a key part of my job. Being an educator is more than just a job, though. It is my vocation, and I am just as passionate about teaching as I am about research. Undergraduate and postgraduate. Large group lectures, small-group seminars, one-to-one tutorials. In the classroom, lab, or in the field. Engaging and developing student skills, knowledge, critical awareness, and intellectual curiosity.
