I teach a variety of classes in media, communication, and information. I redesigned the undergraduate research methods class as well as the Media and Information Policy class at the Department of Media and Information at Michigan State University. At the University of Leicester, I taught classes ranging from communication theory and research methods to classes on digital media and everyday life. Besides teaching in traditional classroom settings, I have vast experience in teaching distance learning and online classes through various modes to both undergraduate and graduate students.


In addition, I also acted as a mentor to a large number of undergraduate and postgraduate students throughout their dissertations. I am especially interested in working with students who are eager to investigate the relationship between digital media and various realms of society, and specifically societal issues and inequalities.
