I have been in the British Higher Education industry for more than a decade. I consider myself to be a highly motivated and passionate scholar in both research and teaching activities, offering applicable experience and seeking higher development in my academic career. Throughout my educational and academic life, I keep improving not only my extensive knowledge in economics and econometrics but also considerable skills.

I previously worked as a part time lecturer at Middlesex University between 2010 and 2014. Afterwards, I became a member of staff in the Faulty of Business and Law at Coventry University in January 2015. During my time here, I have been working with a wide range of students from different backgrounds at varying levels of Stage 1 undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, and also with different schools and their academic staff.
