Since 2017, I have taught on multiple undergraduate and postgraduate modules at the University of Nottingham and Coventry University in areas such as media (legacy,  digital, social), communication, critical theory, and cultural studies. I am currently an Assistant Professor in Language and Communication at the University of Birmingham in the Department of English Language and Linguistics, co-developing the new BA Digital Media and Communications programme. I am responsible for curating and delivering the first year Researching Digital Cultures and Media History and Technologies modules. 

I am an experienced higher education teacher in a broad range of media and communication theories and practices with extensive involvement in leading, designing and delivering modules (both synchronous and asynchronous) through face-to-face and online lectures, seminars and workshops, using a range of platforms and software, including Aula, Canvas, Moodle, Zoom and MS Teams.

As a Teaching Associate in International Media and Communication Studies at the University of Nottingham (2017-2022), I supervised undergraduate dissertation students and co-taught on modules across the BA International Media and Communications Studies  and MA International Media and Communication Studies  programmes. I have previously taught on the BA Film and Television Studies programme at the same institution. As an Hourly Paid Lecturer at Coventry University (2020-21), I supervised postgraduate dissertations, convened an MA module and lectured on the MA Communication, Culture and Media programme. I also contributed to team taught workshops and lectures on the BA Media and Communications and collaborated in developing the existing programme.

I am an Associate Fellow of the HEA.
