With a background in both data science and biology I am well aware of the importance of good programming and data skills for successful biological studies.
As such, I am actively engaged in training the community through learned society-sponsored training events.
Currently, I deliver two
Python for Beginners and
Bioimage Analysis in Python in person; however, I (and my colleagues) are working hard to make these resources openly available on-line as well.

If you’re interested in organising a training course where you work, please
My teaching interests focus on the development and delivery of resources that enable student-directed learning of programming languages and data skills.
Teaching at the University of Glasgow
My undergraduate teaching at the University of Glasgow has included:
- the development of new Python learning materials for student-directed learning,
- research lectures on the Frontiers of Physics, where students are exposed to current research at the university;
- and the development of a new practical experiments looking at polarisation and saccharimetry.
Here are links to a few resources that I’ve put together as part of my teaching duties.
- Slides and samples codes for my talk to engineering and computing sciences PhD students: Harry Plotter and the Multiple Visualisation Softwares can be found on my GitHub account
