I was awarded a PhD in Statistics from Aberystwyth University in 1993 and spent a few years working in research, modelling share prices and stock market crashes. I took up a lectureship within the Mathematics and Statistics group at Staffordshire University in 1997 and during that time I have taught mathematics and statistics to students across many disciplines – Engineering, Computing, Health, Psychology, Business. I have taught a range of modules such as: Introductory Statistics, Probability, Statistical Inference, Survey Design, Statistical Modelling.
As a current member of staff within the Engineering department, my teaching is now mainly Engineering Mathematics and I am the Course Leader for BEng/MEng Mechanical Engineering.
