Teaching

I have teaching experience with undergraduate and postgraduate students, both for economics and management types of courses, as well as supervision experience. I have also organised and delivered online modules for the last 8 years and been enjoying the challenges of the virtual learning environments.

I have also supervised several students so far, for both MSc and PhD dissertations. Supervision is my favourite teaching activity. Below you can find more details.

Undergraduate:

I was tutor for the courses of ‘Economics’ and ‘Applied Economics’ at Imperial College in 2004/2005 during my PhD. At Loughborough University I lectured the first year undergraduate module ‘Introduction to Management‘ in 2013.

Postgraduate:

At Loughborough I lectured the module ‘Transport Services Marketing‘  for MSc students, from 2009 to 2013. My teaching was formally observed by Loughborough University’s Teaching Centre and was awarded the grade of “highly satisfactory” (grade 5 on a 6-point scale). From 2013 to 2015 I also contributed to the course ‘Sustainable Cities‘ with a lecture on sustainable freight solutions.

Online

Online tutor and course writer for the Distance Learning MSC modules “Environmental Valuation: Theory, Techniques and Applications” (2013-2019) and “Economics of Environmental Policy” (since 2015), School of Oriental and African Studies – Centre for Development, Environment and Policy). The role involves managing the Virtual Learning Environment, animating the discussion forum, preparing and delivering online seminars, answering students’ queries, writing monthly e-digests, setting and marking assignments and exams. I am also a University of London official examiner.
