I am a Lecturer in Online Teaching at the Institute of Educational Technology, the Open University (UK), and a Visiting Researcher at the Department of Management Science, Lancaster University. My research seeks to understand how technology can be leveraged to improve social justice in the learning contexts, and more generally - in society.
I am a Fellow of Higher Education Academy (FHEA). As a seminar leader and then an Assistant Professor, I taught a variety of academic university courses on education on the undergraduate (e.g. 'Second Language Acquisition', 'Literature and Language Teaching') and graduate (e.g. 'Research Methods and Thesis Writing', 'International Development and Education') levels in international English-medium settings, as well as in the UK.
My research has been published in such leading education journals, as Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, Interactive Learning Environments, International Journal of Ed Tech in HE, Computer Assisted Language Learning, English for Specific Purposes, and in such CORE A conference proceedings, as Learning at Scale.
