I have been teaching in higher education in the UK for a number of years. 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, politics, media, communication and research methods in food research. I have supervised numerous dissertations and theses and have been an internal and external examiner at vivas.
As part of MSc Gastronomy degree I teach Food and Communication and at an undergraduate level, Food in Film and Media as an elective module. These modules explore human communication related to food, from family meal talk, to cookbooks, advertising, government campaigns and media, to food and art, including film, and communication through space, such as restaurants.
Since 2019, I am a Senior Fellow of Higher Education Academy (SF HEA).
