Profile

I gained a BSc (Hons) in Maths at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and an MSc and a PhD in Statistics from the University of Sheffield.

More recently I was awarded an MEd by the University of Sheffield. I now teach Business Statistics and Quantitative Methods for Management Research at the Management School.

Research interests

I support colleagues undertaking research requiring quantitative input in a variety of areas.

At the moment I am working closely with colleagues exploring issues related to sustainable consumption.

Other areas of research include the issue of undeclared work within EU-27 countries and performance measurement in SMEs.

Teaching activities

I am the module leader of two modules at undergraduate level:

  • MGT137 - Analysis for Decision Making
  • MGT223 - Business Statistics

The aim of these modules is to enable students to develop competencies in those quantitative techniques and tools which are essential for the collection, analysis and interpretation of data in a business context.

The focus is on how quantitative techniques can be used to support effective business decision making.

In addition to developing an understanding of the relevant techniques and the ability to apply them (including skills in the use of Excel and other commercially used statistical software such as SPSS), students develop skills in communicating the results of such analysis in a range of business situations.

I am also involved in teaching quantitative research methods at postgraduate level and contribute to the Management School´s Executive MBA Programme.

In addition to my teaching activities I am personal tutor to a number of undergraduate students, offering them personal and academic support over the course of their studies.
