I have been involved in teaching at masters level since 1987 when I taught practical classes on the Public Health Engineering course at Imperial College. Subsequently, as a Research Officer, I was involved in teaching water and analytical chemistry at masters level, initially with 15 hours of lectures a year, which increased to 25 with development of contributions on environmental microbiology and wastewater treatment. I was also responsible for organising and participating in the week long “study tour” for 20–30 MSc students to East Anglia for 5 years.
Since arriving at Brunel University, I have been involved in teaching on the MSc programme within the Institute for the Environment. After my arrival in November 2005, I delivered a 15 credit module in “Water Management” the following term. I jointly led in gaining approval for two new MSc programmes, in Environmental Science, the “Pollution and Monitoring” and the “Legislation and Management” programmes. I have been Programme Leader on the Pollution and Monitoring course since 2006. I have also been a Senate Representative involved in the approval of new courses at Brunel University.
External Teaching Duties
I have recently been appointed as an external examiner at UCL on the MSc in Environmental Systems Engineering run by the Department Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering. I am also an external examiner for the MRes in Analytical Chemistry run by the School of Science and Technology at Nottingham Trent University.
