Overview

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

I really enjoy creating and facilitating an interactive teaching and learning experience and students at Bangor University clearly recognise this: I have been nominated for several Studend Led Teaching Awards and in 2014 I was awarded a Teaching Fellowship by Bangor University.

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 developing commonwealth countries to study on our MSc Tropical Forestry programme.  Up to Autumn 2019, this has involved well over 100 scholars from over 20 different countries.

I oversee these scholarships, with fantastic support from a number of colleagues.  A particular highlight of this scheme is the Tropical Forestry Study Tour,.  Find out about some previous tours (and much more!) on this webpage.
