Personal profile

Research Interests

My current research interests are in the psychology of decision making in complex environments, and I support the progress of research projects within the team.

In November 2014, I presented the research paper “Risk perceptions, attitudes and behaviours: perspectives on transceiver use in Scottish mountaineering,” at the 3rd International Adventure Conference in Sogndal, Norway.

Teaching Expertise

Over the years, I have designed and taught on many modules and courses within the School of Adventure Studies.  The main areas that I have been involved in teaching have revolved around aspects of professional practice, adventure sports coaching, leadership and decision making.

Services Expertise

I have been at West Highland College since 2006, and have helped pioneer the development of the School of Adventure Studies and its suite of programmes.  Prior to that, I came from an active and varied 17 year career in the outdoor sector, which has been driven by an on-going passion for all forms of mountain sports; particularly rock climbing, hill walking and mountaineering, as well as skiing and paddlesports.  Through these interests I have fostered an equal passion for understanding the underpinning ideas behind these activities as a professional practitioner, coach and educator. 

My career has taken me throughout the UK and abroad, as well as experiencing a huge range of professional leadership and management roles in diverse areas from adventure education and management training to ski guiding and winter mountaineering.  This passion continues in an active and varied life with the School of Adventure Studies, where professional values and skills are still fully embedded in the work we do.
