Teaching

I started academic teaching in 2011, teaching Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Web Development to undergraduate students at the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the University of Essex. As part of that role I helped develop course materials, prepare assignments with marking schemes, mark assignments, and provide one-to-one student support during labs.

I'm now the module superviser for CE206 Human Computer Interaction and Information Visualisation and help teach CE201 group projects, CE301 final year project students and CE901 masters students.

In association with Proficio, I have developed a new workshop for postgraduate researchers aimed at getting participants to publish their first paper or improving papers in progress.

In 2013 I worked as science staff at the Operation Wallacea marine research base on Pulau Hoga, Indonesia. My role was to lead the research on Opistobranch diversity, distribution and abundance and mentor students who were collecting data for their dissertations by providing assistance with project methodology, data analysis and report writing. In 2016 and 2017 I ran the marine site in Dominica for Operation Wallacea and led the coral reef ecology lectures.
