I worked at the Open University from 1982 to 2014, first in the Faculty of Science and then (from 2005) in the Faculty of Health and Social Care. I retired in July 2014 and am currently an Honorary Associate in the School of Environment, Earth & Ecosystem Sciences in the Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
For more information about my background, experience, teaching and research, see my personal website.
I continue to carry out research as an Honorary Associate in the School of Environment, Earth & Ecosystem Sciences. My research interests lie in animal behaviour and evolution. In the past, I have studied the behaviour of red deer, peacocks and bushcrickets! Since my retirement, I have returned to bushcricket research.
I have also carried out extensive work in e-learning. My most recent work in this area was the EADDLS project, of which I was co-director.
More information about my research and a list of selected publications can be found on my personal website.
During my OU career, I contributed materials to modules on health and social care, animal behaviour, evolution, animal physiology, human neurophysiology, and the environment.
