Having graduated from the Universities of Loughborough and Liverpool, I joined the University of Salford as a lecturer in 1991 and progressed to a personal chair in 2008. During this time, I have served as Admissions Tutor for the BSc (Hons) in Mathematics, Industrial Placements Tutor for the BSc (Hons) in Business Operation and Control, and Course Leader for the MSc in Operational Research and Applied Statistics. I have also taught many modules and supervised many projects on these courses.
Jointly with colleagues, I have received several research council grants for maintenance modelling and health care, organised two IMA International Conferences on Mathematics in Sport and conducted randomness testing for the National Lottery Commission. I have published fifty-five refereed research papers and book chapters, graduated nine PhD students and one MPhil student, and organised three streams at national Operational Research Society Conferences.
Having recently completed two terms as Council Member for the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, I currently serve as Member of the Finance Committee and Conference Strategy Committee and as Chairman of the North West Branch. Previously, I served as Chairman for the General Applications Section and Member of the Manchester Group for the Royal Statistical Society.
Current teaching comprises modules on Probability Theory, Mathematical Statistics and Operational Research for the undergraduate mathematics course. I also supervise individual students for undergraduate mathematics projects and postgraduate business dissertations.
Research interests include mathematics, statistics and operational research with applications in reliability & maintenance, medicine & health and sports & games. I am Associate Director of the Centre for Sports Business Analytics and Member of the national Mathematical Methods in Reliability Research Consortium.
