Biography

I have both industry and academic experience. After finishing my PhD study, I worked for a leading UK software company, where I was involved in developing statistical software for the pharmaceutical industries and biological research laboratories. Then I worked in the Department of Computer Sciences at Exeter University and the University of Wales (Aberystwyth). Before joining the Faculty of Management, I worked for a UK Government Research Laboratory and in Central Government Department as Senior Statistician/Senior Analyst, where I applied statistical and pattern recognition techniques to solve real and complex problems. I also had a number of years teaching and undertaking research at one of the top Universities in China before coming to the UK.
