My current research focuses on the development and use of open educational resources (OERs) in a tertiary setting. Undertaking tertiary education is a huge financial burden on an individual, and it generates an entry barrier. I hope that with the use of OERs as primary sources in university courses, it will reduce the financial stress experienced by students and institutions. I am also a sessional academic. I have taught a range of biology disciplines, ranging from anatomy and physiology, to molecular biology, and immunology. I have extensive experience in laboratory practicals including being the Demonstrator in Charge, running tutorial classes, and presenting lectures.
