I have been teaching in higher education for more than a decade. I started as a tutor of media, discourse and communication seminars while I was a PhD student at Lancaster University during 2008-2012. I later taught English for Academic Purposes and Study Skills to various age groups and nationalities, at the Universities of Lancaster, Heriot-Watt and Edinburgh.
At Queen Margaret University Edinburgh I have taught and developed various postgraduate and undergraduate modules on food, culture, media, communication and research methods in food research. My favourite module is a postgraduate module on food and communication, which forms part of MSc Gastronomy degree. It explores human communication related to food, from family meal talk, to cookbooks, advertising, government campaigns and media, to food and art and communication through space, such as restaurants.
Since 2019, I am a Senior Fellow of Higher Education Academy (SF HEA).
