Overview

Hi, I'm James.  The main focus of my work in Bangor University is supporting students on the undergraduate and postgraduate distance learning forestry programmes. 

I really enjoy creating and facilitating an interactive teaching and learning experience. 

I also act as mentor and staff liaison officer for the Bangor Forestry Students' Association (BFSA). 

Grant Awards and Projects

Since 2011, the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission has generously supported postgraduate distance learning students from across developing commonwealth countries to study on our MSc Tropical Forestry programme.  Up to March 2017, this has involved nearly 100 scholars from over 20 different countries.

I oversee these scholarships, with fantastic support from a number of colleagues.
