“In teaching, Brenda instills in her students an enthusiasm for the subject, made all the more marvelous by the inclusion of her own materials as class examples. I doubt it can be stressed sufficiently how influential this is on young minds, having exciting materials delivered direct from the business end of geology and by a lady who does not fit the stereotype of the scientist in his ivory tower.”

She manages, through her research, teaching, and public outreach, to bring the local and global together.
