Dr Jenny Bennett: How the geology has shaped the river and what the sediments can tell us about its past. 

I discovered geology through the Open University whilst I was working in local government. After my degree I tutored part-time for the OU in geology: then changed career and became a student again, completing a PhD at the University of Exeter on the evolution of the Exe valley in 2006, and after that continued to teach at both Exeter and the OU. I was very happy when the South West group of the Geological Society awarded me their Frederick Sherrell career recognition award in 2018. At present I am Chair of the Devonshire Association’s Geology Section and continue my interest in the evolution of rivers and the recent geology of Devon and Cornwall.
