Teaching

I have worked as a class teacher and seminar/workshop leader both in Brazil and in the UK, and I am now an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I am keen on developing my teaching experience, particularly within the areas related to my research interests – such as social media studies, digital humanities, media cultures, interpersonal mediated communication, media & communications theory, technology and society, and qualitative methods. I have taught at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, covering different modules in departments of communication (LSE, UFRGS) and sociology (LSE):
