Module coordinator
Freshwater Biology (BR22020)
As module coordinator of Freshwater Biology I introduce students to the organisms and processes that characterise freshwater ecosystems. The module incorporates a range of freshwater habitats from small rivers to large lakes, and organisms from viruses to vertebrates and the interactions between these groups.

Freshwater Biology Field Course (BR32910)
This course is a residential one that allows access to a large lake, with adjacent laboratory facilities. The course comprises of lectures and practical and examines aspects of open water biology and freshwater fishes.

Lecturer
Behavioural Neurobiology (BR31510)
As a lecturer on ‘Behavioural Neurobiology’ I introduce a range of neural, and neuroendocrine, mechanisms that underpin animal behaviour. Examples are taken from various animal taxa with the intention of grasping the principles that produce certain behaviours.

Threats to Natural Ecosystems (BR34210)
‘Threats to Natural Ecosystems’ introduces students to the anthropogenic threats to natural systems and mankind. These threats include climate change, pollution and over-exploitation of resources. Examples will be given from a range of ecosystems, including marine, freshwater and terrestrial. Furthermore, the module aims to rectify misconceptions of science and explore ways to better communicate scientific knowledge.
