“I have a strong research-focused approach to learning and teaching, which, in turn, recognises the strong nexus between teaching and research. Teaching builds the next generation of researchers and research informs teaching.
“In order to deliver relevant and high quality teaching, which is the essence of the student experience, I have always felt personally obligated to maintain a high level of significant research activity. This is important for instilling in students that research is a central activity in problem-solving. The follow-on experience of the thousands of students I have helped educate over the past four decades bears testimony to what I have set out to achieve.”
