In 2018-19, I developed and taught - as an External Lecturer - an academic course in Cross-Media at the Danish School of Media & Journalism. The course carried 5 ECTS credits for students undertaking a Bachelor's degree in Communications.  

In 2018-19, I was also a Guest Lecturer at Copenhagen University, teaching a workshop in Branded Content to postgraduate students on an MA Cross-Media course.

Presently, I'm completing a research degree at the University of Birmingham exploring how young adult audiences aged 16-34 engage with news content on digital and social media platforms.
