IMPACT: teaching, MEDIA & OUTREACH
TEACHING ZOOLOGY IN THE WILD…
My principle passion as an educator lies in confronting students with the wonder and complexity of natural systems in the wild places of the world. I have led fieldcourses at both Undergraduate and Masters levels in Central America, East and Southern Africa, South Asia and closer to home in Europe and the UK, across deserts, savannahs, tropical lowland and montane rainforests, dry forest, alpine, coastal and marine habitats. As a keen field biologist, mammal watcher, photographer, diver and climber, sharing these wild places with enquiring minds fuels my own inspiration too. I also teach several more traditional courses on our Zoology undergraduate programme, including Animal Ecophysiology and Biology of Mammals.
