August 2010 I have had a 50% role as Faculty of
Science Deputy (Postgraduate) so have a reduced (allegedly)
Courses I have taught recently are as follows.
past years I have taught, L1 Technology for the Modern World, L1
& L2 Structures, L3 Stress Analysis, L3 Surveying, L3 Soil Mechanics, L3 CAD, L4
Geotechnical Engineering ...
Outside Durham I contribute to the UK courses on Computational
Geotechnics run by Plaxis.
