My initial training as a philologist and teacher of languages and literature (BA and MA), experience of international work and subsequent retraining in public health (MPH) as an international student, combined with more recent move to academia and further PG learning, have all influenced the focus of my current research and overall research interests.
I currently teach Public Health and Community Studies at CU Coventry (part of the Coventry University Group), and recently joined Academic Development team, Office of Teaching and Learning as an Academic Developer for CU Group. Outside academia, I have enjoyed a successful career in public health, community work, capacity building, project and programme management at local, national, and international level, primarily within third sector and funding agencies.
As an advocate of lifelong learning who studied in three different countries, I find international and intercultural knowledge exchange and subsequent transformation fascinating. Building on my wide-ranging professional background, I am curious about development and changes in one’s professional self-identity. As an educator and academic developer, I am interested in identifying unexplored opportunities and piloting new approaches in teaching, learning, assessment, or project work for international, intercultural, and interprofessional collaboration that enhance employability of the graduates.
As a result, my PhD research focuses on the impact of Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) and similar virtual mobility projects in higher education on perceptions of the students’ professional self-identity, employability prospects, and potential for social innovation.
In addition to intercultural learning, interprofessional practice, graduate employability, and social innovation, my research interests include sustainable development, workplace wellbeing, environment and health.
