I hold a number of overseas external examiner appointments and have consulted with universities in the U.S., Europe, Australia, New Zealand and China on the development of actuarial science programs. I have won numerous awards for teaching innovations including Times Higher Education Most Innovative Teacher of the Year finalist (2011) and being named one of the top 20 micro-innovators in Europe in 2012 (VISIR).
