Meet the team

Dr Jenny Freeman:

MASH manager

Jenny Freeman: MASH manager

I started managing MASH in September 2017. For the four years before that I was an associate professor of medical statistics and health informatics as the University of Leeds and prior to that I was a senior lecturer in medical statistics at ScHARR. I have always enjoyed teaching and have a keen interest in how students learn statistics. Managing MASH is a great opportunity for me to ensure that students at Sheffield have the support they need to get the most out of their studies here.

Dr Ben McGovern:

Academic Skills Advisor (Mathematics)

Ben McGovern: Maths advisor

I began working as a maths advisor for MASH in September 2017, but have been part of the MASH team since 2013 working as a postgraduate maths tutor.

Teaching has always been something I have enjoyed, especially in the more relaxed and personal environment that MASH creates. Being both an undergraduate and postgraduate student of Sheffield myself, it is very fulfilling being able to give back to the university and provide support for its students.

Academic Skills Advisor (Statistics)

Basile Marquier: Stats advisor

I started working in MASH in 2014 and I started working as a permanent statistics advisor in September 2017.

I am a friendly and patient tutor and I love helping others in mathematics and statistics. I will do my best to offer concise and structured explanations to help students understand the statistics material and also the underlying concepts.

Dr Marta Emmett:

Academic Skills Advisor (Maths & Stats)


I have been a mathematics and statistics advisor in MASH since 2012. I provide statistical support to students on a 1:1 setting, helping students understand statistical techniques and how to best analyse their data.

I also deliver regular statistical workshops which are available to all students, including numerical reasoning workshops to help students improve their numerical ability when facing employers’ selection tests.
