Dear Students, 

We hope you're having a relaxing summer. As promised, we are getting in touch to introduce some of the key people to you who will be teaching and supporting you during your time here at Queen Mary. 

We also have a very supportive student community who will be helping with your transition to university. You will be hearing from the Geography Society later in the summer. 

The whole team will be there during Welcome Week (17-21 September 2018) to meet you, welcome you, and make you feel at home.  
 Introducing Professor Alastair Owens
If you attended one of our Festival of Geography Offer Holder Days earlier this year, you'll remember Professor Alastair Owens. He is an historical geographer whose research focuses on Britain in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. He’ll be teaching research methods and leading the Liverpool field trip as part of our ‘Reinventing Britain’ module. He was appointed Head of School of Geography in January 2018.
"I hope you are enjoying a well-deserved break after your exams, and that all goes well for you on results day. I, and the whole School of Geography at Queen Mary, look forward to welcoming our new first-year students in September. We have a whole week of induction talks, events and activities to welcome our new students to Queen Mary, followed by the 'Green London' project week when students will get to know this part of London, our staff and each other before lectures, tutorials and practicals start. Our Geography Society are working hard to welcome our new students too."

 Introducing Professor Dave Horne
Professor Dave Horne is Director of Taught Programmes in the School of Geography. He has overall responsibility for teaching and learning matters within the School, and is actively involved in teaching at all levels of undergraduate programmes from Year 1 to Year 3. He is Professor of Micropalaeontology, and his lectures are practical, interactive and good fun.
When Dave is not hunting for rare species of ostracods in Scotland on fieldwork, he is busy ensuring that all our undergraduate modules are fully integrated with enhanced opportunities for you to broaden your perspective, skills and experiences. This will help you to really stand out from the crowd by the time you graduate. It's never too early to start thinking about your career!
We will be in touch again soon, but if you have any questions or queries at all, please don't hesitate to ask us!

And look out for the next instalment of our #MeetTheTeam emails which will introduce the Teaching and Learning team. 

With best wishes,
