I am Andrew Browne and my role in the MLC is as a maths support lecturer. 

After completing my MMath in Mathematics with proficiency in Japanese at the University of Exeter, I am about to have my PhD viva at the University of Cambridge. I have previously taught as a Peer Assisted Learning leader and undergraduate tutor for first year students at Exeter, an undergraduate supervisor at Cambridge, and both demonstrated and was the primary lecturer for a core statistics course at Cambridge.  

My specialisms for teaching are undergraduate mathematics, particularly statistics, both in theory and in practice with Excel, SPSS, and R.

I graduated in BSc Mathematics where I studied core mathematics and statistics modules. Following my undergraduate degree, I developed a strong interest in mathematics and education and pursued my passion to specialise in this area by securing a PhD studentship at Coventry University.

For over 10 years, I have been teaching and supporting undergraduate and postgraduate students with mathematics and statistics related queries. I specialise in teaching students from a range of disciplines and ability, including teaching Maths for Engineering, Pharmacy and Nursing students. I also teach Statistics including Excel and SPSS to Psychology and Biomedical students.

I am a senior Maths support lecturer in the Maths Learning Centre. 

My background in Maths Education is varied.  I started my career as a Secondary Maths teacher (in London and Hertfordshire) before moving onto writing Maths curriculum and assessment resources, training teachers (at Nottingham) and teaching at a local FE College (Loughborough). 

I have particular expertise with Nursing & Midwifery students and first year Engineering students – for whom I run workshops.  I also specialise in supporting students prepare to pass Numerical Reasoning tests which are often needed when applying for placements, progression onto further study (eg Teacher training) and for employment.

I am a statistics support lecturer in the Maths Learning Centre.

Originally, I studied Biology, graduating with a BSc in Biology and then a PhD. This is when I developed an interest in using statistics to answer research questions.  After completing my PhD at the University of Leeds, I taught Sport Science students, gaining experience in helping students with their data analysis and dissertation write-ups.

At DMU I help students with their statistics queries, supporting both undergraduates and postgraduates from a range of different disciplines.  I specialise in practical statistics and provide several workshops to help students understand and apply statistics to their studies, research projects and when critiquing the literature.  I also assist students who need support with data analysis, using programmes such as SPSS, Minitab and Excel.
