Teaching and research

Teaching

I use a variety of different teaching styles and learning activities, depending on the type of module and the learner group. I view learning as a socio-cultural, constructivist and interactionist process in the Vygotskian tradition. My main goals are always to help students develop their intellectual, practical and creative potential and to encourage their personal development. My teaching puts the learner at the centre. I aim to provide a safe and interactive learning space, design work programmes with clear progression routes, and create study materials and tasks which take into account different learner types and mixed-level learner groups.

Undergraduate, Postgraduate

Research

Through the belief that Internet of Things (IoT) as a research interest is leading the way internationally in advanced Communications, where shaping new thinking, accelerating discovery and nurturing bright ideas to improve lives, that is framing and moving my research into interdisciplinary approach combining Big Data, Cloud Computing and Telecommunication under the umbrella of Information and Communication Technology.

The international importance of my research approach is evidenced by my numerous well-received presentations at national and international conferences and by the status of the international academic and professional journals, I have published in. Besides research, for more than a decade, I have applied research integrated into teaching methodology within the curriculum development and courses delivery, where it shows excellent results in students learning outcomes.
