I am a University Teacher specialising in landscape history and planting design. Having completed my PhD in 2013, I joined the Department of Landscape full time where I teach both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

n my teaching I like to use live projects so that my students get the first-hand experience of how design translates to installation. I began my career as a gardener and then head gardener, working in historic gardens all over the world.

In addition to my work for the Department of Landscape, I am Senior Examiner for the RHS’s Master of Horticulture qualification.
