My doctoral research at Birmingham focused on aspects of social and economic history of Ottoman Cyprus in the seventeenth century. I have since engaged in research and teaching on topics ranging from the early modern Ottoman Empire, Venice, trade, travel, military history, early modern identity and nationalist historiography.
In the past I worked as a teaching fellow at the University of Crete and the University of Birmingham. I also worked as a learning skills specialist and a learning technology consultant in the College of Arts and Law. I have been involved in the scholarship of teaching and learning since 2009. My engagement with the PGCert programme at Birmingham has fuelled my interest in pedagogy in HE, and since 2011 I have been working as an academic practice advisor in HEFi. My particular interests are interactivity in lectures, alternative modes of delivery, constructive alignment and learning technology.
