Teaching and Supervision

I teach with an interdisciplinary profile covering fundamental and applied subjects across undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Cambridge, and guest lectureship at Oxford, CMU, UoW and university-led summer programs.

I supervise undergraduate and MPhil candidates from engineering, architecture, physical sciences and management studies.
