A bit about me…

I am primarily a physical geographer, my specialism is in Glaciology. I spent 3 years writing a thesis based on research at Svinafellsjokull and a couple of other glaciers in Iceland. I have been out to Iceland several times, mainly for research/trips but the occasional holiday as well!

I am currently a Geography NQT at Baxter College, but I have also taught undergraduate students at Keele University whilst completing my MPhil degree.

Why I love being a Teacher Tour Leader…

I became a teacher tour leader as it was a dream job! I love Iceland and even more, I love to teach others about Iceland – there’s no better feeling than watching students’ faces when they see the wonders Iceland has to offer!

My favourite place in Iceland…

My favourite place in Iceland is and always will be Svinafellsjokull . I’ve spent many days (and nights) walking around the margin of the glacier carrying out research – we have a special bond now!

One of my favourite things to do in Iceland is hiking in Landmannalaugar or visiting the Jokulsarlon lagoon – every time I go back I’m still blown away by it’s ethereal beauty.
