Teaching Approach

DSC_0025I have a strong commitment to research-led teaching. I see applied research feeding into professional development and student-centred learning. I am keen to use my knowledge and experience to provide students with an understanding of cutting edge conceptual and operational debates on a broad range of issues related to climate change impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability. In particular, to guide and support students to think more critically and deeply about what they are studying from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective.
