Development and Alumni Relations
The aim is to provide an integrated approach to all activities with the above areas. MACO is there for you!
My main area of teaching has been in Geography, having written several high school textbooks and first year university texts in PNG.
I also have been an invited guest lecturer and presenter on geography topics, my main area of interest and expertise is malaria.
More recently the topics I have presented have been related to marketing.
My main area of research interest has been the interface between geography and disease. During my MIPH, I worked on this interface using malaria as the case.
I am now interested in research relating to development and alumni relations - what excites people to re-engage with the university and what makes a person give.
We have currently been working with the Panthers ( South Adelaide Football Club) and Brighton Surf Life Saving Club to profile Flinders. I have personally become involved with both clubs.
