In 2016, she was awarded the University of Essex Excellence in Teaching Award due to incredibly valuable work she did in supporting her students and her peers in CSEE. She went above and beyond the contractual obligations of the teaching-support role she occupied and it was recognised through the award. Her practice is very support-led; this was acknowledged as a role model in her field through the award.
In 2017, she became a KTP associate leading a collaborative project between the University of Essex and Above Ltd to take the company existing drone technology to the next technological level to bring sophisticated, accurate and automated monitoring to Europe's booming solar farms.
During her time as a KTP, she designed and prototyped a drone sensor device that gathers data from various sensors (IMU, GPS, and Pyranometer, Temperature, pressure and humidity sensors). She also developed an image processing algorithm that segments individual solar panels from both thermal and visible images.
In 2019, she became a Technical demonstrator at Essex University where she provides day-to-day dedicated technical teaching support for students within CSEE department. She is working alongside CSEE academic staff. She supports lab and class teaching sessions including demonstrating methods and techniques to students in programming, report writing and hardware/electronics.
