Food Teaching Laboratories
Tel 64 3 479 7544 Ext 7544
My role as a Technical Assistant involves setting up and management of labs for undergraduate students, in both the Food and Sensory laboratories, and assisting post graduate students with supplies for their particular field of research.
I liaise with schools, for Outreach programmes held within the department as well as other external groups.
On a day to day basis I have a lot to do with the students (both under grad and postgrad) providing help and advice to ensure they enjoy their time at University.
In my spare time I teach antenatal classes, and have done since 2001. With my husband, I own a café which he runs and I assist with when time allows, especially over the busy summer months.
