School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics (Faculty of Science & Engineering)
BSc (hons) 2(i) Mathematics, University of Leeds, 1981.
PhD "Finite Element Modelling of Glass Fabrication Process", University of Sheffield 1988.
I co-ordinate SUM:UP providing numeracy, mathematics and statistics support for students across the University.
I lead the following modules:
Ordinary Differential Equations MATH2603 (Second-year degree)
Fluid Dynamics MATH3610 (Final-year degree)
Mathematics Project MATH3602 (Final-Year degree)
I am also interested in computer algebra systems (Maple) and in computer-based assessment (Maple TA) as well as audience response 'clicker' systems and alternative assessment methods.
