After my undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Economics at Loughborough University, I spent around 15 years working for the Big 4 Accountants, KPMG and PwC, as a qualified pensions actuary. I decided to join Academia in 2013 as a Lecturer in Actuarial Science to inform and shape actuarial and mathematical education to equip students with the necessary skills to become leading professionals.

I have held a number of roles at the University of Leicester including the Head of the Actuarial Science group, Dean of Internationalisation of the College of Science & Engineering and Chair of the University's Gender Equality Action Group. I am currently the Head of School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences.



My teaching is mainly focused on microeconomics, business finance, modelling and communication, professional skills and employability. These modules can lead to actuarial exemptions in the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries professional exams of CB1, CB2 and CP2. In addition, I also supervise final year undergraduate projects and dissertations.
