Professor Philip Donoghue


Professor Donoghue currently teaches 3 courses:


I am the Director of the Geology degree programme (2017-2020) and I teach on all of the undergraduate degree programmes in their first and second years, providing an introduction to the evolution of Earth and Life. I also lead the Year 2 Geobiology unit, in which I try to bring my integrative interdisciplinary approach to research into the teaching environmment. I am part of the team leading the first year Introduction to Field Skill in Earth Sciences unit on the beautiful (and geologically fascinating) Scottish Isle of Arran. I also supervise research projects for the MSci Geology and MSc Palaeobiology degree programmes, which is a particular delight.

Seek me out if you are interested in evolutionary history, most especially if, like me, you like working at the interfaces between disciplines!
