I have both delivered and designed courses and seminar series in comparative and legislative politics (1stand 2ndundergraduate), political behaviour and representation (final year undergraduate and postgraduate), European Union politics (undergraduate and postgraduate). I have taught seminars in quantitative methods (undergraduate and postgraduate) and I am convener of the core research methods module for the MSc in European and International Public Policy at the LSE. At the LSE, I am also convener of a postgraduate module on the comparative effect of EU membership on domestic policies, institutions and political behaviour and of a capstone-style policy analysis module.

I have been commended for my teaching with awards from both LSE and Trinity College Dublin, as well as from excellent student feedback scores. I have won the LSE 2019 Class Teacher Awards for the European Institute and have been highly commended for ‘inspiring teaching’ at LSE 2018 Class Teacher Awards. I have been awarded the Dermot McAlesee Award for Teaching Excellence in 2015 by the School of Philosophy and Social Sciences in TCD in recognition of my teaching philosophy and outstanding teaching performance. In the same year, I have also been nominated by the School to the University-wide Trinity College Teaching Award for Postgraduate Students.

I am a committed and enthusiastic teacher that privileges dialogue-based experiential learning, and research-based teaching. Other than student-led research presentations, I often plan games/simulations, debates, research design and policy/institutional design team-projects into my classes. I believe that diversification and empiricism enhance the learning experience of students by activating long-term memory processes and critical thinking.
