I have a particular interest in teaching enhancement activities in the areas of translation and contemporary literature. I am constantly looking for ways to enhance students’ learning, from engaging them in the research process, to arranging for visiting writers to hold workshops, and developing teaching translation methodologies. From 2011-2012, I was responsible for research-led teaching enhancements in the School of Modern Literatures and Cultures.
