Teaching Interests

My teaching interests are centered around chemical oceanography and its links to geological, biological and physical oceanography. I teach core modules for the denominated Earth and Ocean B.Sc., the Marine Science B.Sc. and contribute to the Environmental Science B.Sc. and the general Science B.Sc. at NUI Galway. My teaching has a strong field-based component.
