I am a teaching focussed academic in the School of Mathematics and Physics. I have a PhD in applied statistics and love mathematical programming in R, python and Matlab.

I am particularly interested in understanding the ways in which first year university students seek help outside of their shceduled classes and the role that university first year learning centres can play in helping students succeed.
