Ceri Davies – Bath Spa University

Personal statement

Dr Ceri Davies is a Teaching Fellow in Physical Geography and has been part of the Bath Spa community since 2017 with her previous role as a Science Technical Demonstrator (specialising in laboratory and field analytical instrumentation).

She specialises in teaching hands-on laboratory, field and computer-based skills, covering areas such as nutrient analysis, numerical data analysis and ArcGIS. She has a particular interest in environmental science, hydrology and biogeochemical cycles following her PhD in Environmental Science in which she developed and implemented a stable isotope method to trace phosphorus in freshwaters.

She is a member of the Hazard, Risk and Disaster Research Group
