My teaching philosophy reflects my interests in collaborative authorship as I prefer student-centred teaching that encourages learning by both students and teachers. I am very much interested in teaching and 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.
I am happy to supervise BA and MA theses. If you are interested in writing your BA or MA thesis at the Chair for Comparative Politics, please read the following documents very carefully.
