As a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, I am a well-credentialed, experienced (>1k hours) teacher and module leader, able to deliver high-quality content in the context of higher education and public outreach projects.
I have developed an open science state-of-the-art digital research infrastructure through my YouTube Partner channel, which has>1.6k followers. My team uses the platform as a vehicle to host journal clubs, talks, and develop international collaborations. My aim is to positively impact neuroscience teaching and freely share science education.

UNDERGRADUATE and POSTGRADUATE LECTURES
PSY 7113J Cognitive and Affective Bases of Behavior. Clinical PhD class, The City College CUNY, US
In this lecture, I discuss the basics of neuroimaging and how we can use these methods to study behaviour.
Life in Academia - tutorial, Principles of Cognitive Neuroscience module,MSc Psychology, Padua University, Italy
This interactive tutorial is part of the Principles of Cognitive Neuroscience module of the Master course. I discuss with students what my experience has been of life in academia and answer their questions.
Language & Aphasia, BSc Neuroscience, Dept. of Psychology at Columbia University, US
This course is designed to teach the brain-behaviour relationship through lesion and single case studies.
The lecture is available on YouTube:
Heroes and Villains: Psychology of Comic Books, BA Psychology, Caldwell University, US
In this lecture, students were introduced to technological advances in brain-computer-interface and brain-enhancement techniques that have been displayed in graphic novels and comic books. We discussed the scientific origin of these techniques, the real-world applications of them, and possible ethical and biological obstacles for their realization.
3D printing as a neuroscience tool, Synthetic Anatomy, King's College London, UK
The aim of the module is to explore anatomical structure in a choice of possible contexts: development, evolution, structure and function. Students will work on a pre-selected anatomical structural series or group of related structures in small groups. Groups will comprise collaborative teams of students from Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Sciences overseen by a designated tutor. Each group will 3D print anatomical components from image databases, 3D scans or designs and explore their anatomical significance through a co-designed webpage.
Research Carousel sessions, BSc Psychology, King's College London, UK
In this interactive series of lectures, we introduce students to various neuroimaging methods and work through examples together with the students to reach an understanding of the potential benefits of one method over another, any issues (ethical, practical, or methodological) of using this technique, and what types of research these technologies can be used for.
Stroke and the impacts on cognition, MSc Neuroimaging, King's College London, UK.
This lecture looks at the risk factors, causes and consequences of stroke from a medical and neuropsychological angle.
Neuroanatomy, MSc Mental Health Studies, King’s College London, UK.
Equipping students with knowledge within the field of Mental Health and with the opportunity to examine one area further through both theoretical and empirical research.
A systematic review on autism neuroimaging, Psychiatry Research, King’s College London, UK.
SSC Psychiatry Research aims to introduce medical students to the excitement and challenges of academic research in psychiatry.
Neuroanatomy of language and language disorder, Intercalated BSc Cognitive Neuropsychology, King’s College London, UK.
The aim of the iBSc is to provide medical students with an in-depth, critical understanding of research, theory and empirical findings in psychology. Involved in lecturing, and examination.
Neuroimaging, BSc Psychology, King’s College London, UK.
This interactive lecture was the first to introduce students to the breadth of neuroimaging sciences and interactively involve them in testing fMRI paradigms in the classroom.
