I am Head of Geography at Hampstead School, a large comprehensive school in North London and am in my 5th year of teaching geography. I completed my Masters in Education at the University of Cambridge having previously studied Geography at the University of Exeter. Studying the cryosphere made up a large part of my undergraduate degree and I’ve enjoyed engaging with research in the poles ever since. I first got involved with the UK Polar Network through their outreach projects and wanted to join the committee to help expand their work and ensure that more students could engage with, and learn about, polar research.
