Field Trip Coordinator
Sidney is an amateur geologist who likes to mix the intellectual and the outdoors. Sidney is responsible for the AGS field trips, which cover local and more remote Scottish geological sites.
Member of AGS since 1987. Main interests: Deserts, present & past, North Sea & Middle East (mainly Oman) geology.
Having graduated in the 1970s I first worked as a hydrogeologist, but migrated to the oil industry, where I’ve worked mainly in the UK with a variety of oil companies. The AGS provides a welcome breath of fresh air as it covers a very wide range of topics in its lectures and field visits.
Originally an Electronics graduate from University of Edinburgh in 1972, I had the opportunity to pursue my other passion of Geology when I semi-retired from the subsea technology industry in 1996. I was encouraged to study for a geology degree at Aberdeen, as a (very!) mature student, and graduated with honours in 2003.
