Currently I teach on the MSc in Science Communication, which is offered through the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM).  I also lecture, run seminars and advise for CHSTM's other PGT offerings (the MSc in HSTM, especially the Medical Humanities Pathway).  In 2017-2018 I will be a PPD tutor for the Medical School and will be available to supervise PEPs.  I also supervise second year dissertations and final year projects for SBS, and will likely contribute to CHSTM's undergraduate offerings in Spring 2018.

In the past I have convened and taught several undergraduate modules for CHSTM, as well as postgraduate units.  Previous undergraduate teaching includes Madness and Society (Semester 2), Bodies in History (Sem 2), From Cholera to AIDS (Sem 1), From Baker St to CSI (Sem 1), Bioethics (Sem 2), and the Science and Society RSM (Sem 2).  At the postgrad level, I have previously convened Major Themes in Medical Humanities (Sem 1), and lectured on HSTM Skills (Sem 1); Medicine, Science and Modernity (Sem 2); and Making Modern Technology (Sem 2); I will most likely be lecturing on these postgraduate modules again in Semester 2, 2016-2017.  In the Manchester Medical School, I have been a Phase 1 (Semester 4) PBL Tutor.

In previous years I have been co-director, with Dr Sarah Collins of the Manchester Medical School, of CHSTM's MSc pathway in Medical Humanities.
