Teaching

Methods  

I convened the PG module SO819 Analysis of Quantitative Data - running in Spring terms, and gave the quantitative methods lectures for SO602 Methods of Social Research. I ran several methods workshops in the past years, including Multilevel modelling workshops at the University of Kent (as a part of ESRC DTC training), Tilburg University (as a part of EDACwowe) and University of Hamburg. Currently due to my projects, I am not teaching these modules any longer.


Current

I am still giving a variety of lectures around gender issues, East Asian welfare state and labour market policies:
·         Gender & Sexuality - UG SO337 Fundamentals of Sociology
·         Gender & the Welfare State - UG SA503 A Future for the Welfare State? & PG SO877 Comparative Social Policy
·         East-Asian Welfare State - UG SA503 A Future for the Welfare State? & PG SO872 International Social Policy
