1996: Technician in Industrial Electronics, Vocational High School for Electrical Engineering and Electronics, Plovdiv, Bulgaria
After obtaining my doctoral degree in 2008, for eight years I was teaching communication and computer engineering modules at three universities and two colleges in Bulgaria. During that time, I also spent three half-year periods of research in terahertz technology at leading institutions around the world through competitive international fellowship schemes:
2014: Visiting researcher at the University of Adelaide, Australia
2015: Visiting researcher at Nagoya University, Japan
2016: Visiting assistant professor at the University of Rochester, USA
I joined the Open University as a lecturer in 2017.
