From September 2019, I will be an Assistant Writer with Spark Young Writers (Writing West Midlands).

In Summer 2019, I ran a series of workshops at Warwick:

In 2018/19, I was a tutor for the undergraduate workshop Academic Writing in both the English Literature and Economics departments. I taught first-year English Literature and Economics undergraduates skills for writing academic essays. I also lectured and taught seminars on Global City Literature: Image, Theory, Text (EN374) (UG hons),  New Literatures in English (EN251) (UG hons), and Modes of Reading (EN122) (core UG).

As of June 2016, I am certified as an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy for teaching and learning support in higher education.

In 2014/15, I was a seminar tutor for the core undergraduate module Modern World Literatures (EN123). I taught 2 seminar groups with texts from 18th century to contemporary literary periods, by writers such as Goethe, Baudelaire, Ibsen, Conrad, Soseki, Kafka, Beckett, Nabokov, Salih etc., ranging fiction, theatre, poetry, and film. The students were taught to engage with the concept of modernity from a global perspective.

In Autumn 2013, I co-led a seminar of the Masters-level module Problems and Modes in Postcolonial Literature (EN904), using material from my PhD research. The Masters students were taught about a Caribbean novel, Patrick Chamoiseau's Texaco.
