Bedrock normal fault scarp exposed across hillside
SUMMARY Current Lecturer in Earth Sciences at the University of Plymouth (UK) I teach on several different courses, broadly covering geophysics, natural hazards, active tectonics and the fundamentals of earth science. I teach on 1st and 2nd year undergraduate field courses, based in the South-West of the UK (North Devon and the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall) and the Spanish Pyrenees.
