Teaching Experience

I have wide-ranging teaching experience. I was heavily involved in the teaching of the Quantitative Methods (statistics and modelling) course in the Oxford departments of Zoology and Plant Sciences. I have given numerous tutorials, demonstrated in practical classes and advised several students on statistical issues arising from their final year projects. For two years, I was responsible for teaching statistics to biology undergraduates at St. Hilda's College, which involved the supervision of approximately forty students in their second and third years. I have given several graduate level lectures on subjects including epidemiology (Epidemiology Short Course, Depts. of Zoology and Continuing Education, Oxford) and the use of statistical techniques in the analysis of epidemiological data (Summer School on Nonlinear Dynamics in Biology, University of Odense, Denmark).

Other Achievements

I have been involved in several projects which have increased the public's understanding of science, taking ideas from mathematical biology to a wider public audience. I was involved in the National Theatre's (London, U.K.) production of Tom Stoppard's play Arcadia, explaning scientific ideas and methodology to members of the cast in addition to helping design the programme notes. I was an advisor on the Chaos Box exhibition at the Science Museum, London. An article I wrote for Scientific American described a computer implementation of the Prisoner's Dilemma, encouraging readers to experiment with the model.
