Biography

I began teaching at Keele University in 2011 and am currently a Mathematics Teaching Fellow on the Foundation Year Programme.

I personally studied here at Keele on the foundation year and achieved a first class dual honours BSc degree in Mathematics and Economics in1995. I continued my studies and successfully completed a Doctorate in Applied Mathematics at Manchester University in 2000.

Following my studies, I ran my own business before returning to my love of mathematics. To help satisfy my own appetite for learning, I completed a two-year part-time PGCE course graduating in June 2012 and subsequently gained qualified teacher status (QTLS) in April 2013.
