Prof Robin Shail


I am Module Co-ordinator (MC) for Dynamic Planet / Geology (Year 1) and Structural Geology and Tectonics (Year 2). I contribute to several other undergraduate modules, primarily field-based skills teaching, and supervise Summer Vacation Projects. I also teach on the MSc Mining / Exploration Geology and MSc Mining Professional programmes and supervise MSc Mining / Exploration Geology dissertation students - typically those undertaking projects with a SW England and/or structural geology focus.
