I joined the LSE as an academic developer in 2016. I am the department adviser to Economics, Finance, International Development, and Management and work closely with them to enhance and evolve their teaching and learning programmes and practice. I lead the Atlas programme for the Eden Centre, which is a year-round series of academic development workshops and events for staff at the school. I also teach on the PGCert and other professional development programmes run by the Eden Centre.
I am interested in understanding and adopting a critical, multi-perspectival approach to higher education, and am the editor of two blogs – the LSE Higher Education Blog and the Contemporary Issues in Teaching and Learning blog. Having lived, studied, and taught in different education systems and countries, I am passionate about fostering all forms of diversity (ideological, cultural, etc.) in HE. Past research I have been involved in has focussed on journal clubs, online education, developing conceptual understanding, and most recently, on the nature and perception of silence in the classroom.
