I am very pleased to be the co-ordinator of the University of Oxford's M.Sc. in Biology (Integrative Bioscience). This degree, which is directed by Dr David Shotton, provides excellent exposure to advanced topics and research techniques from the full spectrum of Biology. The taught courses include Animal Behaviour, Cell and Developmental Biology, Mathematical Biology, Ecology and Conservation Biology, Ornithology, Molecular Biology, Experimental Design, Scientific Communication, and Statistics. The excellent students who engage in the degree programme must also undertake two three-month research projects based in dissimilar fields.
One of my primary teaching duties for the M.Sc. in Biology is the co-ordination of the course in Mathematical Biology, for which I also provide lectures on population modelling. My other teaching interests include entomology, population and evolutionary ecology, sociobiology and experimental design and analysis.
