Staff Profile

Fiona Maclachlan

Laboratory Technician (Teaching & Res)


I have worked as a teaching and research technician in AFRD for twelve years.

I am responsible for the SAGE teaching laboratory. My work covers four main areas: Environmental Science (my area of specialism), Food and Human Nutrition, Animal Science and Agriculture.

During term time I spend my time preparing and assisting in taught lab classes, and helping Undergraduate students with their dissertation projects. Over the summer months I assist MSc and PhD students with their research projects.

I am also studying part time towards an MPhil.
