I commenced teaching at QUT in 2004. Since this time, I have developed and delivered new curriculum that is challenging, authentic and relevant for all undergraduate year levels and across the biological science, environmental science and environmental engineering curriculum. My teaching goal is to capture student interest and extend student understanding and I do this by connecting students with the subject matter so that they can personally relate to concepts and build a deep level of knowledge.  My teaching emphasises practical applications for solving environmental problems and real world learning outcomes which will enhance student prospects of employment.

I received nominations for VC Awards for Excellence in the areas of exceptional sustained performance and outstanding achievements in innovative and creative practice, leadership and learning and teaching in both 2015 and 2016, and in 2018 I completed QUT's Expert Peer Review of Educational Practice and gained an overall outcome of ‘exceptional’.
