Senior Teaching Fellow (BEAMS – Bartlett School of Architecture/Engineering/Maths and Physical Sciences)
* Having researched and taught in several departments at UCL and other universities, I have been in UCL's Centre for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching since 2003. My role in CALT currently sees me work with academics across BEAMS (Faculties of Engineering, Maths and Physical Sciences and the Bartlett School of Architecture) to explore teaching and learning of all kinds. With a background in ancient languages, history, history of religion and medicine, I moved into interdisciplinarity and higher Education as my fields of study and teaching, which shows in my predominantly reflexive approach, with an emphasis on supporting disciplinary integrity. My work in CALT has also seen me lead MAs in Education and Academic Practice before moving to a more strategic role supporting teaching and learning across UCL. I continue to teach on interdisciplinary courses such as the postgraduate trans-UCL module Investigating Research and a graduate course on Interdisciplinary Studies of Evidence, amongst others and publish on interdisciplinary themes.
