Teaching

My teaching aims to reflect my research interests in promoting interdisciplinarity. I currently teach a module in ‘Population Studies‘ at MSc-level, which introduces students to global population trends and uses an interdisciplinary approach to interpret these trends. I am also increasingly interested in promoting a critical perspective on research in my teaching. Here’s a slide deck from the ‘Conceptual approaches to population studies‘ lecture, which outlines the very interdisciplinary nature of demography. Slides

I also run a training session for early career researchers on ‘Good practice in peer review‘. Slides

MSc Demography & Health, LSHTM

I teach on this long-standing MSc, which will celebrate its 50th(!) birthday in the 2020-21 academic year. It provides excellent training in demographic methods and theory, statistical methods, and population studies as well as allowing students to take a range of options, both methodological and substantive.
