I am a Senior Lecturer and coach in LSBU Business School. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and am on the University's Academic Board. I did my PhD in Pure Mathematics at Queen Mary, University of London and I carry out research in Combinatorial Optimisation.

My research is in Combinatorics - Matroid, Graph and Design Theory. I have one PhD student.

I am also Principal of LSBU Business School, Croydon campus, and am passionate about fostering relationships and collaboration amongst local businesses, students and academics.
