Profile

I am a past student of Te Kura Kairūri, and joined the staff in 2013. At the School of Surveying I manage Hydrographic Surveying – primarily teaching students and working with researchers from Surveying, Marine Science and Geology, as well as running demonstrations with visiting school students.

I have been part of several research cruises on the university Research Vessel Polaris II and am on the management team for our new multibeam echo sounder. I teach practical hydrography skills around Dunedin Harbour on the university vessels RV Beryl Brewin and RV Polaris II.

In conjunction with our UK partners at the Marine Learning Alliance (MLA) I run the Southern Hemisphere hydrography practical papers that form part of the Hydrographic Academy (HA) Hydrography for Professionals distance taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses – the only online course in the world (http://www.mla-uk.com/). Students from NZ and many international locations come to attend these papers during NZ summer.

Prior to coming to Otago I completed my MSc (Hydrography) on the FIG/IHO/ICA recognised Category A course in Plymouth, UK. My background also includes several years working worldwide on a variety of hydrographic projects including charting, habitat mapping, oil and gas, renewables and offshore construction.

I thoroughly enjoy being at sea and like to learn, share and apply all aspects of nautical knowledge to my teaching – as well as when I’m at the beach, out sailing or kayaking!
