MASH : Maths and Stats Help

Laura Pearson

Laura is the manager of the centre and has been working in Maths and Stats support for over 10 years.

I enjoy the challenges my job brings, being exposed to new ideas in statistics and seeing how I can jump in and help my students the best I can. I take a wholistic approach to my support, it's so much more than helping with the technical side of maths or stats.

Jamie is our Maths specialist in the centre with a research focus in maths anxiety.

I love that I can help students from a wide variety of courses. In a single day I can see PhD students testing robotic arms, Masters Students finishing a passion project of criminal justice reform, Bachelors Students completing their first research projects, and foundation-year students starting their HE journey.

Having studied Psychology for 8 years, I have a great understanding and appreciation for the wide range of statistical methods that students employ. I took on the role of student advisor at MASH as I thoroughly enjoy helping students with stats related issues and can’t wait to get started!

As a 3rd year Psychology student, I've been learning statistics since my first day of university. The library has always been the place where I do my best work, so I'm glad to part of the team here to support other students.
