Our new Department Administrative Manager, Lisa Burke who joined us on 1 April, has been elected as a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
Since achieving an Undergraduate Degree in Environmental Land Management and a PGCE Teaching qualification, Lisa’s career has been dedicated to furthering geographical knowledge and training the next generation of professional geographers.
She brings this experience and expert knowledge to assist us in developing our Department of Geography at EHU and support us in achieving our strategic objectives in our teaching and research across the broad discipline of Geography, including Geology.
“I am delighted to work alongside this team of dedicated staff within the Department of Geography at Edge Hill University. Having secured this Fellowship, this will now provide me with the support to further advance the engagement of this subject and share my enthusiasm of Geography to a wider network.”
Fellowship of the Society will enable Lisa to be better informed about new developments in Geography and the Society, enable her to connect with the broader community of Geographers, access expertise and resources and continue her professional development as a Geographer.
Through her support of our department and engagement in furthering geographical education, Lisa will support and sustain the charitable work of the Society to advance Geography and geographical learning.
