During my visiting professorship in the English Department at the University of Malta (2013-2016), I have acted as advisor on a number of academic issues: I have acted as external examiner on the MAs in English, evaluated programme developments at postgraduate level and research development (journals, conferences, PhD supervision).

I have also acted as an assessor and consultant for a number of research proposals for funding organisations in the UK, Israel and Austria, as well as a reviewer of publication proposals for major academic UK and international publishers and journals.
