Our programme team
Meet the staff who contribute to the teaching and implementation of the MSc in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health.
Dr Sharron Ogle, MSc Programme Director
I started my academic life as a medical student in Edinburgh over 20 years ago and have made my way back here by a rather circuitous route. Realising life as a doctor was not for me, I left my medical studies in the fourth year with honours in Medical Microbiology and went on to qualify as a high school teacher, teaching Biology and Science for 4 years.
Mr Rob Thomas, Deputy Programme Director
I'm the Deputy Programme Director for the MSc in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health. I joined the MSc teaching team in 2011.
Dr Sarah Greenwood, Teaching Fellow
I’m a part-time Teaching Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, working mainly on the MSc in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health. I have been working on the programme since 2014 but started my current role in August 2016.
Dr Ellie Devenish-Nelson, Teaching Fellow
Before joining the University of Edinburgh in 2016, I was a Postdoctoral Research Assistant at the University of Chester, modelling climate change impacts on dry forest habitats in Grenada.
