I have a transdisciplinary approach to teaching, combining critical theories and urban political ecology with situated practice for the study of urban economic development.
I currently lead two modules:
DEVP0038 Urbanisation and Development for the MSc Programme in Urban Economic Development. This module offers a critical introduction to the key economic concepts, theories and tools applied to problem diagnosis and policymaking in urbanisation and development;
BASC0018 Urban Inequalities and Global Development for UCL BASc Arts and Science Programme. This module is taught to undergraduate students and takes a critical look at ‘the urban’ in the context of development, globalization, and environmental change.
I also teach in other two core modules of the MSc Programme in Urban Economic Development:
DEVP0018 Managing the City Economy. This module is designed to enhance the understanding of the city economy and train students in the application of economic criteria to the analysis and management of the city economy in both developing and developed countries.
DEVP0019 Practice in Urban Economic Development. This module explores the challenges of promoting inclusive economic development in urban areas both in developing and developed countries, offering students real-life platforms to examine the experiences of urban economic development and management practices.
