Teaching & Talks

Teaching

Feb – Apr 2018 Instructor in the practical use of Mathematica for foundation year students.
Oct – Dec 2014 Teaching assistant (TA) in Solid Mechanics, a fourth year undergraduate course at the Oxford Mathematical Institute (MI). Tasks involved marking exercise sheets, designing model solutions as a part-time job, and teaching revision classes based on past exam papers.
Jan – Mar 2014 Class tutor in Mathematical Mechanical Biology, a fourth year undergraduate course at the MI. Tasks involved full responsibility of tutorial classes (designing solutions, marking and explaining) of this new course, as well as teaching revision classes.
