Areas of interest

  • Crop physiology, particularly in relation to climate change
  • Pedagogy, including feedback and using technology to enhance learning
  • Student work placements and the benefits

My research interests are in crop physiology, particularly environmental (including climate change) impacts on crop growth and development. More recently, I have used crop modelleling techniques to assess the impact of a range of climate change scenarios (see publications for more details).

I am also heavily involved in pedagogic research, working closely with colleagues throughout the University of Reading and the UK, including the Higher Education Academy. I am particularly interested in assignment feedback and the use of technology to assist this.


I co-ordinate a number of modules in the School of Agriculture, Policy and Development. I use my pedagogic research to provide a number of methods of giving feedback to my students, and often use video feedback which enables students to access detailed feedback anytime, anywhere.
