Bio: Married to Sarah, we have a son and married daughter, now in their 20s and living in the London area. My own school education was in Shropshire followed by six years at the University of London where I graduated with a degree and doctorate in mathematics. I continued at university in Los Angeles, returning after two years to the UK and the University of Durham. This was followed by twelve years in industry with the UK Atomic Energy Authority before returning to university, this time to the University of Hull. I retired in July 2020 having served as Head of Mathematics and Faculty Admissions Tutor, overseeing admissions to Science and Engineering degree programmes. As a recently appointed Foundation Governor at Archbishop Sentamu Academy, I have come to see how much the Academy has to offer in terms of opportunity for all, in particular building confidence and raising aspiration for our young people, qualities which I believe are needed so much here in Hull.
