I’ve been working as an Actuarial Trainee for KPMG since September 2016, specialising in pensions. Many consider this an interesting career change given my notable media experience until I tell them about my educational background in Mathematics: I have a master’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Leicester, during which I was awarded the Best 4th Year Project prize for my master’s thesis “K-nearest neighbours and ‘historical Monte Carlo’ approach to modelling of financial time series” which was given the grade of 93%. I am also an Associate of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, the professional and learned society for qualified and practising mathematicians.

Despite having been the voice-over for the 1Xtra Breakfast Show, the Student Radio Awards and BBC Introducing in Kent, being featured in a Buzzfeed article viewed more than 2 million times, and appearing in BBC dramas watched by more than 5 million people, I’m almost certainly best known for my work in radio.

I’ve been working for the BBC for more than eight years: At BBC Wiltshire, I presented documentaries, reported for Breakfast, Midmorning and Drive and drove the desk for hundreds of programmes, ranging from round table political debates to complicated sports shows. At BBC Radio Leicester, I produced both Saturday and Sunday Breakfast, Saturday Midmorning and Clueless. As a freelancer, I regularly covered my previous position as Weekend Producer at Radio Leicester, as well as taking on the occasional newsroom or production shift at BBC Radio Derby.

I’m also the former Station Manager of LUSH Radio, the student radio station of the University of Leicester.
