Working & Learning at the University of Edinburgh – Student Ambassador, Geologist, Red Lichtie

The blog covers my life at the University of Edinburgh as a geology student, Student Ambassador and as a resident presiding in the Athens of the North. If you want to learn about the amazing geology of Scotland or explore the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde nature of the city, this is the space to chart! I cover poetry, geology seminars, field trips, university life, tourism in Edinburgh and everything Scottish.

My Experiences with Autism and Dyslexia in Geology and while on GeoSciences Field Trips

Hunor Deak working for the University of Edinburgh

I am a BSc Geology graduate from the University of Edinburgh, School of GeoSciences. I studied various aspects of geosciences for 5 years. I worked for the University of Edinburgh as a Student Ambassador, Receptionist, Social Media Representative and Office Aide. I volunteered with the School of GeoSciences as a public outreach helper, where I helped to run various geology workshops at science festivals. I wrote geology based blogs to several sites of the School of GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh.

I am an active member of a major UK political party and a UK wide Councillor association (Liberal Democrats). I volunteer at Hospitalfield House, an art and heritage museum.

I am interested in mining geology, geoconservation, European history, museum management, science outreach to the public, international relations, the history of propaganda, student recruitment, relations between universities and Scottish local politics.

Hunor Deak in the North Highlands of Scotland

I went on a field trip to Anglesey with the University of Leeds. The trip included a lot of people with disabilities. There I recognized that I struggled with the same problems in the field.

I have autism and dyslexia. The university and the NHS helped me to recognize this and come up with solutions in the field. Tablets replacing notebooks are a great idea!
