Dr Kevin Reiling

  • Job title: Associate Dean - Recruitment
  • Department: School of Life Sciences and Education

Background

My research and teaching falls into two broad areas, one is looking at how organisms cope with the environment, ranging from biochemical through to evolutionary perspectives. The second main area involves educational research with a focus upon student understanding of criteria and subsequent application to assessment. Whilst my teaching areas cover many organisms from many angles of adaptation and survival my research work is focused primarily on plants and pollutants, principally atmospheric.

I am interested in the public understanding of science and have designed and presented many activities to try and highlight the creativity and application of science. Many of these are designed to give an insight into what scientists actually do, trying to help people explore and understand the distinction between the body of knowledge that is science and the actual approach that is science, a favourite thought being “scientists do science the way artists do art”.
