Personal profile


I have been a lecturer in Quantitative Methods at the University of Portsmouth since September 2013. I hold a PhD in Operational Research from University of Wales, Swansea, which looked at measuring efficiency in NHS Trusts using Data Envelopment Analysis. Following my PhD, I spent 9 years as a Government Operational Research Service analyst, working in the Department of Education and Employment, the Department of Trade and Industry and the Border Agency. During this time, I worked on diverse projects such as the development of a value-added measure for 16-18 year olds, forecasting air passenger traffic demand, analysing performance ratings by gender and ethnicity and forecasting nationality applications.

I am the course leader for the Digital Business Management MSc and lead the associated Business Analytics module on the programme. I also teach analytics on level 4 & 5 modules. I am responsible for the employability and skills development modules for the Business and Supply Chain Management BSc degree programme.
