Biographical Statement

To summarise myself, the following comes to mind: enthusiastic and passionate PhD mathematics student. Having begun my PhD in Mathematical Modelling, Analysis and Computation on the MAC-MIGS CDT (a programme jointly coordinated by The University of Edinburgh and Herriot-Watt University), I am looking to broaden my horizons in terms of mathematical topics and knowledge - particularly in the field of Mathematical Biology.

I strongly believe that the formal structure of the study of mathematics is reflective of my overall personality being a person who is inherently organised in my thinking and extremely rigorous in my approach to work.

I also consider myself to be a caring person, very focussed on the needs of others, as shown by my commitment to volunteering and work with a local charity in Liverpool and with a student led Street Angels project ‘NightSafe’ in York. I have used this passion for helping others as way to develop a range of interpersonal skills such as team working, planning and project management. When not researching, I enjoy teaching and coordinating youth programmes. Most recently this has involved work with NCS Learn by Design.
