Teaching specialisms

I am the module leader for International Relations Theory in the Modern World and for Global Energy Politics and Governance which I have designed for our undergraduate students.

At the University of Edinburgh, I have taught on international cooperation in Europe and beyond looking at the theorising on international cooperation as well as key international organisations such as the EU, the UN, the WTO and the IMF. I have also taught more advanced courses on approaches to Politics and International Relations to honours students.

At the University of Cagliari, I have given some guest lecture on EU energy policy in the framework of a module on European Integration.
