Dr Damien Mansell
Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography

Profile

Damien obtained his undergraduate degree in Geography B.Sc. at the University of Sheffield (2004-2007). He went on to research for a PhD at Swansea University entitled ‘Controls on the calving rate of North-West Svalbard glaciers’. Insights from the relative control of calving mechanisms were drawn from satellite images to investigate the nature and timing of relationships between changing ice-marginal extent, velocity, meltwater availability and sea-ice cover. After his PhD, Damien gained field experience by assisting on a research project in South East Greenland with the GLIMPSE Swansea University Glaciology Group. Damien moved to The University of Exeter in 2011 and is now Senior lecturer in Geography and Programme Director of Physcial Geography. Damien completed postgraduate certificate in Academic Practice in 2013 and achieved the status of Fellow of The Higher Education Academy.
