Key responsibilities

I work full-time as a teaching specialist in mathematical sciences based in the College of Science and Engineering.

Teaching interests

As a teaching specialist in mathematics, I am interested in new methods of teaching that improve learning. I am particularly interested in investigating better ways to guide students through new material and finding ways of providing specialised assistance. In mathematics, I believe we have a large responsibility to help how students view mathematics and to ensure they believe in their capability to learn.

My teaching expertise is mainly in concepts related to calculus, from first principals through to advanced methods in applied mathematics, differential equations and basic analysis. I have experience with material from high school level through to graduate topics.
