### Teaching

I was first employed as a lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in September 2016 and have been a Senior Lecturer since September 2019. From 2017 to 2022 I was the First Year Tutor for the BSc Mathematics course and since 2019 I have acted as an LGBT+ Tutor for both the BSc Mathematics and BSc Physics courses.

I previously worked as an Assistant Demonstrator, Lead Demonstrator, and Marking Assistant at the University of Sheffield, as well as being a Visiting Sessional Tutor at the International College of the University of Sheffield.

I will be teaching on the following modules in the 2022/23 academic year:

**Fundamentals of Mathematics and Computer Architectures**- first-year discrete mathematics for computer scientists

**Game Theory and Recreational Mathematics**- final year combinatorics, game theory, group theory, and history of mathematics

**Number and Structure**- first-year discrete mathematics, abstract algebra, and number theory

**Mathematics and Cryptography**- first-year discrete mathematics and cryptography for cyber security students

**Linear and Discrete**- second-year linear algebra, algebraic coding theory, and basic cryptography for mathematics students

**Maths for Economics**- first-year calculus, optimisation, and financial mathematics for economics students

**Graphs and Networks**- first-year network theory, project management, graph-searching algorithms, and operational research

Previously I have taught on the following modules:

**Abstract Algebra**- final-year abstract algebra and automata theory

**Mathematics for Computer Science**- first-year discrete mathematics and automata theory for computer scientists

**Maths for Graphics**- first-year discrete mathematics, arithmetic, and algebra for computer science for games students

**Statistical Theory and Methods**- second-year statistics and probability

**Engineering Mathematics**- first-year engineering mathematics

**Rings and Groups**- second-year abstract algebra

**Numbers and Groups**- first-year abstract algebra and number theory

**Number Theory**- first-year number theory

**Continuity and Integration**- second-year real analysis

**Information Analysis**- first-year business mathematics

**Foundation Mathematics I and II**- A-Level mathematics and further mathematics for foundation year students

**Core Mathematics**- A-Level mathematics for international students

I have supervised final-year projects in the following areas:

- category theory
- topology
- survival analysis
- the mathematics of perspective drawing
- the mathematical work of Ada Lovelace
- the mathematical work of Alan Turing
- simulating Enigma-style cipher machines
- the mathematics of biodiversity
- measure theory
