Rwy'n ddarlithydd rhan-amser ar yr MSc mewn Cadwraeth Adeiladau Cynaliadwy ym Mhrifysgol Caerdydd.

Bywgraffiad

Ar ôl gyrfa gynnar fel syrfëwr archeolegol, hyfforddais mewn cadwraeth cerrig yn Eglwys Gadeiriol Wells. Yna fe wnes i redeg fy musnes cadwraeth adeiladau fy hun am 13 blynedd.

Yn ystod yr amser hwn, fe wnes i ymddiddori fwyfwy yn ymddygiad deunyddiau cadwraeth a'r cymhellion athronyddol sy'n gyrru cadwraeth. Ym 1995 gweithiais i Brifysgol Bournemouth fel uwch ddarlithydd ac arweinydd cwrs ar eu cwrs BSc mewn Technoleg Cadwraeth Adeiladu a'u MSc mewn Deunyddiau Pensaernïol. Cadwraeth.

Yn ychwanegol at fy nysgu cyfredol yng Nghaerdydd, bûm yn arweinydd cwrs ar gyfer y radd sylfaen mewn Cadwraeth Adeiladu yn y Coleg Crefftau Adeiladu. Fy mhrif ddiddordeb yw cyfathrebu technegau cadwraeth ac athroniaeth i fyfyrwyr academaidd a chynulleidfaoedd y tu allan i'r byd academaidd.
