I am an actuary and a mathematician. I conducted pure mathematics research and taught over 50 modules of university mathematics in the U.S. before training as an actuary with Aegon Insurance’s Transamerica division. In 24 years with Transamerica, I carried out research and development for dozens of life assurance and annuity products and managed actuarial support for over 10 million in-force policies. Now my entire focus is on developing the Swansea University Actuarial Science programme to provide great opportunities for future actuaries.
I am a Fellow of the U.S. Society of Actuaries and am engaged in the actuarial community in Wales as well as the UK Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. I am active in outreach to schools across Wales and enjoy presenting on insurance careers and actuarial mathematics.
