About Me

I was born and raised in Blackpool, before completing my MSci Mathematics degree at Lancaster University. It was here that I first came across the STOR-i programme on an open day during my third year. Throughout my degree, I particularly enjoyed statistics and algebra modules, the former of which led me to apply to STOR-i in my fourth year.

Outside of mathematics, I enjoy playing and watching a variety of sports.

I play golf with family and friends as regularly as the Lancashire weather permits! Here is me playing in early 2015 at Windermere Golf Club. I also enjoy playing tennis, badminton, table tennis and squash when I can.

I have been known to play football, but due to serious issues regarding simple ball control I usually prefer sticking to watching! I have supported my hometown club Blackpool FC for 16 years, a following which has included 3 promotions, 2 relegations and 3 trips to Wembley! However, the less said about the state of the club at the moment, the better....

I am also a big cricket fan, I bowled slow-medium pace for a local club for many years, yet now only keep up with the progress of England and Lancashire. I also like to swim at the University Sports Centre. Away from sports, I enjoy hill walking, either in the Lake District or East Lancashire.
