About Me

I am Adjunct Associate Professor at Bond University, previously Lecturer in Mathematics at Queensland University of Technology and Associate Professor (Mathematics & Computation) at Bond.
Academic qualifications are in Mathematics, Physics & Computer Science. My PhD is in nonlinear integer programming.
I've had a varied scientific career: including areas such as solar energy, technical engineering software for Queensland electricity authorities, and cryptographic software engineering.
Over the past 25 years, I have been active in consulting work and developed a number of intricate mathematical models for aspects of Keno in Queensland & NSW.
Current research interests relate to the use of modern spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel in mathematics education.
I designed technical aspects of and currently co-teach the new Law elective Coding, Cybersecurity & Cryptoliteracy for Lawyers at Bond University. This unit makes extensive use of Excel throughout to illustrate fundamental principles of coding, block chain and cryptography.
In 2002 I established the present open access electronic journal Spreadsheets in Education, which publishes fully peer-reviewed research articles plus classroom resources for teachers and students.
In 2009 I was awarded an Australian federal citation for teaching excellence.
