I am the module convenor for GEO2317 ‘Climate Change: Science and Society’, co-taught with Neil Adger. The aim of the module is to develop students’ skills in the scientific and social scientific analysis of global climate change, using perspectives from physical and human geography, economics and politics. The course gives a grounding in climate and society relations, economic principles, ethical dimensions and the governance of climate hazards, energy and greenhouse gas emissions. Students are challenged to think about the interlinked human and physical geographic dimensions of climate change, through a series of student-led debates on topical climate change issues. Further information can be found in the module information form or on the Exeter ELE site (login required).

In addition, I teach into:

  •  GEO3311: BA Dissertation
  •  GEO2325: Research Methods for Human Geography
  •  GEO1310: Geographies of Environment and Sustainability

I am particularly interested in supervising dissertation students who wish to explore:

  • representations of climate in traditional media (TV, newspapers)
  • climate change discourse online (e.g. blogs, Twitter)
  • perceptions of weather, climate, and climate change
  • the process of climate change adaptation
  • the use of visual methods for geographical research
