Teaching & Coursework
I have the great privilege of holding a lecturing position in the Fenner School of Environment & Society. In this role, I currently convene two courses, and lecture into several more. My major involvements are:
Co-convenor, 2014-2016, Lecturer 2017
The Earth is an amazing network of integrated systems: geological, oceanographic, meteorological, the cryosphere. Learning about each of these sciences allows students to understand their interconnections and realise the Earth for what she is - our amazing Blue Planet! A particular focus is placed on the Anthropocene. I lecture into the solar radiation and energy portions of the course.
Convenor, 2013-2016, Lecturer 2017
Weather, Climate and Fire is designed to give students a solid understanding of meteorology, climatology and bushfires. In a continent prone to extended droughts, vulnerable to high-based, low precipitation thunderstorms, and full of highly flammable vegetation - Australia’s economy and the lives of its citizens are heavily influenced by the intersection of these three categories. Herein, I lecture on meteorology.
A new course I developed, Convenor 2017
This course instructs students on the fundamentals of a wide variety of severe weather events, and provides them with the tools required to analyse these events, in order to complete a risk assessment to an industry stakeholder. Students learn to interact with these stakeholders in a professional way, assess their risk to severe weather events, and ultimately, to deliver valuable information to potential employers!
