One of the best parts of being an academic is the ability to inspire students through teaching. My approach has always been based on the need to challenge and stimulate students, encouraging critical thinking and analytical engagement with current issues. I use range of methods such as debates, student presentations, engagement with non-academic actors, etc. in order to promote inquiry-based learning and the development of students' analytical, communication, and transferable skills.

I currently teach on the following modules:

M11153 Introduction to Comparative Politics

M12098 How Voters Decide

M14121 Quantitative Political Analysis
