David Rowland biography

I joined Student Services as a Learning Adviser in the last millennium, so that either makes me old or very experienced! I initially aimed to be a physics / maths teacher, and was a maths lecturer for six years before becoming a Learning Adviser. This quantitative background means a particular interest of mine is helping coursework and research students develop their statistical literacy. However, I have broad interests and a love of reading and teaching mean I also greatly enjoy working with students to develop their oral and written communication skills. Outside of uni, I could be characterised as a Whovian, and when an undergraduate designed and built my own model TARDIS console room.
