Hello, I’m Richard, one of the tutors in Geography at Keble. Thanks for looking at our website! We hope you find useful information here, but if you don’t, please do feel free to get in touch

I teach mainly physical geography and my research is in climate science. My undergraduate university was in Durban. I worked at the UK Meteorological Office before coming to Oxford and, before that, at the University of Cape Town. For more information on my research work you can visit my homepage.

IMG_2606 copyHi, I’m Beth, also one of the tutors in Geography at Keble. I joined Oxford in September 2014, having previously lectured in Geography at Queen Mary, University of London. I teach human and environmental geography here at Keble (and at the School of Geography and the Environment), reflecting my wider research interests in health and disease, medical research (and its impacts) and human-environment relations. For more information on my research work you can visit my homepage. I always welcome queries from interested students, so if you have any questions feel free to get it touch at


Fiona Ferbrache

Fiona Ferbrache

Welcome to our website. I am also a Human Geography tutor here at Keble, with academic research training in social science as well as geography. My interests have led me to explore political geographies of my Guernsey homeland, and social geographies of mobility, migration (of British people to France) and the European Union (EU).  Most recently I have been investigating the economic impacts on cities of light rail systems. In my tutorials you will have the opportunity to reflect upon the world and to consider new ways of knowing it, and I shall also be on hand to advise and support your own research projects in preparation for the Final Honours School.

In addition to tutoring and research, I am a news editor for Geography Directions, a website that links recent journal articles with topical news items. It is a useful site for identifying case studies, and remaining informed of the latest geographical research. If you have a particular issue that you would like me to raise in an article, please let me know:

Sam Hampton

Hi I’m Sam. I teach on the Environmental Geography course here at Keble. I’m currently studying for a PhD in energy policy, looking primarily at how policy can help to cut greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the business practices of millions of Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) in the UK. Prior to this I worked as a sustainability consultant, on EU grant programmes and for large UK businesses like Waitrose and Tesco. And before that, I was a geography undergraduate student at Keble!

You can find out more about what I think about climate and energy policy on my blog, at or on Twitter at @samhampton.

Please also feel free to get in touch with any questions about the Environmental Geography course, or if you’re considering sustainability as a career.

Hello, I’m Callum, one of the Physical Geography tutors at Keble. My main research interest is in African climate science, and for my PhD I am trying to understand how the southern African climate system might change in response to global warming. I was also an undergraduate in the School of Geography and enjoy most things geographical.
