Teaching Fellow in Social Statistics and Demography at the University of Southampton.

After completing a Master of Physics degree in Theoretical physics in 1999, I embarked on a career in computer modelling and programming, later moving into project management. I returned to higher education in 2009 to study for an MSc in Social Statistics, which I completed in 2010. I subsequently obtained an MPhil in 2018 for my research into missing items in cross-national, time series data sets.

I am now the module co-ordinator for two of our undergraduate modules; 'Introduction to Quantitative Methods' and 'Research Methods in the Social Sciences', both run by Social Statistics and Demography within the Faculty of Social Sciences. As part of that role, I also enjoy teaching on those modules. I am also the undergraduate admissions tutor for the department, specifically for the degree programme 'Population and Geography', and am actively involved with Open days and Visit days, where I enjoy having the opportunity to meet prospective students and share my passion for our undergraduate degree programme.
