BA (Open 1992) PG Cert Computing (Open 2006)

I came to Geography at Sussex back in the days of VAX terminals, PET and Apple II europlus microcomputers and my job has evolved with the advance of computing from using BBC Basic on the BBC Bs and Acorn Archimedes in the 1980's through to setting up one of the first university web sites for Geography on a Sun SPARCStation back in the 1990s and then on to the present day working as chief website editor for a large number of Sussex sites.


I manage the following websites:



Research Centres

Recent Research Projects

Sussex Blogs

Other Sites

I am Broadcast editor for many of the school channels.  I manage the Geography department's Twitter account - @SussexGeog and the Los Angeles field class Twitter account - @SussexGeogLA

I also maintain a number of Geography staff and student email groups and the Postcolonial email group.

I assist on the Los Angeles field class for second year geographers and help produce our LA Blog.
