I have extensive teaching experience at a range of levels (from undergraduate lectures to PhD student supervision) and in a range of forms (lectures, workshops, practicals and one-to-one training). I have both prepared new teaching materials as well as covered existing material.
In addition to this, I have provided extensive help and support to a range of MSc and PhD stundents, particular for data analysis, modelling and technical aspects of a variety of work - this is something I am particularly keen on, and find particularly rewarding.
