Guest lecturer

My academic employment has been primarily as a researcher, but I have also contributed to university teaching in many ways – with presentations in seminar series, and teaching in traditional learning settings as both a graduate teaching assistant and guest lecturer. I have been invited to visit numerous research groups whose work is also concerned somehow with sound and/or listening, and shortly before leaving Sheffield I also designed and delivered two new lessons for the Department of Music.
