Tutoring & teaching
I am an experienced educator. At the ANU, I have developed the flagship RegNet course, Law and Regulation (LAWS8034), as part of the ANU College of Law LLM programme—which I am now redeveloping to the RegNet HDR Course Regulation and Governance. I have taught and convened this course on a yearly basis since 2012, to consistently strong positive feedback from participating Masters and PhD students. In October 2014 my sustained and proven education track record was recognised by the UK based Higher Education Academy (HEA), and I am now a Fellow of the HEA.
In an earlier position, whilst at Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands), I taught and coordinated a series of under-graduate and graduate courses in public administration and political science, with a particular focus on regulation, governance and policy. As of 2015, I am responsible for teaching the ACSPRI Methods Course Foundations of Qualitative Comparative Analysis.
I have further taught at the University of Amsterdam (the Netherlands), the University of Washington (USA), the London School of Economics and the University of East Anglia (both UK), and the Sri Venkateswara University (India).
