Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am nearly approaching my 10 year Strathclyde anniversary.

I started at Strathclyde as a undergraduate students in 2011 and graduated with a BSc (Hons - First Class) in Mathematics, Statistics and Economics. Following that, I then started my PhD under the supervision of Prof Tony Mulholland, Prof Gareth Pierce and Dr Katy Tant. My PhD was an interdisciplinary project between the department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, the department of Mathematics and Statistics and the National Physical Laboratory. I successfully defended my PhD Thesis "Reconstructing Spatially Heterogeneous Thermal Maps using Light-based Metrology Sensors" in November 2019.  This collaborative research focused on reducing the measurement errors involved in the manufacture of high value goods. To achieve this an inverse problem was solved using a Bayesian approach. 

In 2019, I began my teaching career at Strathclyde as a Teaching Assistant, I was then promoted to a Teaching Associate in 2020. I am mainly responsible for teaching statistics and at present I teach the introductory statistics module to first year undergraduate students. I also teach Medical Statistics and to keep my maths skills sharp, I also get involved with calculus classes.
