My primary professional focus is on achieving quality teaching and learning outcomes for and with a variety of tertiary students. I specialise in engaging and mentoring first year students in a range of faculties with their initial studies of statistics, seeking to make it interesting, useful and less intimidating as a subject area. I also have a passion for helping students become fluent in the language they need to effectively communicate their science. I seek to make necessary core subjects accessible to students, relevant to their chosen degree and ultimately develop marketable generic job skills within my students. I utilise the best of current technological resources in my teaching with an aim of optimising student engagement and ensuring equity and quality for isolated and distance students.I enjoy engaging with others in research, mainly in mentoring others in statistical analysis of larger multivariate data sets. This work occurs at all levels, with my fellow academics, students at honours, masters and doctorate level and with administrative staff. I am a problem solver; becoming fascinated with helping to analyse and solve the wide variety of fascinating scenarios brought to me for assistance in analysis by my colleagues.
