Dr Jessie Paterson
I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Agricultural Chemistry from the University of Glasgow and then carried out a PhD in 'Factors influencing the availability of cobalt in soils, uptake by herbage and ruminant health and productivity’ from University of Glasgow (with Scottish Agricultural College, Ayr). I then worked for eight years as a Specialist Advisor in major and trace elements for the SAC before taking over the management of the Analytical Services Department, Scottish Agricultural College, Edinburgh.
In 1999, I joined the University of Edinburgh and worked in the School of Divinity initially as the Computing Officer and latterly as E-learning and IT Advisor. During that time, I developed a strong interest in student support and in particular supporting students with their learning. In 2012, I joined the R(D)SVS initially as a Teaching Fellow and more recently as a Lecturer in Student Learning.
