Cherith is a geomorphologist and was impressed with the facilities at the Ormskirk institution after a previous visit.

She added: “I visited a few years ago and was bowled over by the facilities available on campus, and when I had the opportunity to explore the Geosciences building I realised that the laboratory facilities are more extensive and better equipped than many Russell Group universities.”
