Teaching

“Nothing is more fatally easy, in the study of social and economic processes, than the fallacy of extrapolation.” – Peter Hall

I have been a Visiting Lecturer for the undergraduate course Transport Policy and Planning, that provides students with an introduction to Transport, its planning and interrelations with urbanism, at the Bartlett School of Planning, University College London.

For three years I have been a critic for the MSc in Building in Urban Design and Development program where students focus on urban design strategies that involve public participation and social urbanism, for the Development Planning Unit, University College London.

I supported the MSc level course Critical Debates in Urban Regeneration at the Bartlett School of Planning, UCL for three years. I taught this course for two years with Professor Sir Peter Hall and it has been formative to my teaching philosophy. We analyzed urban regeneration projects, of various types, and the costs and benefits of  these projects. We asked “Benefits for whom” as we track economic and resource flows into a location, with particular attention to local populations.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy of the UK, after a rigorous course and application process.

Previously, I have been a teaching assistant at USC for the undergraduate course Introduction to Visual Culture that included guest speakers and field trips to various arts and culture venues in Los Angeles. From these experiences, I have developed and prioritized an interactive approach to teaching that focuses on honing student’s analytical skills.
