I am very much interested in working with students, and to contribute to and develop research-based teaching in my areas of expertise. My significant experience in teaching and mentoring at undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate levels has been recognized as equivalent merit to the 2-year part-time, practice-based Masters level programme in academic and professional practice (PCAPP), obligatory for staff with teaching responsibilities at the University of Warwick.
