Aled is a class teacher for Mathematical Methods (MA100). Following his undergraduate degree in mathematics and music at the University of Birmingham, Aled completed teacher training (PGDip Ed) in secondary mathematics at the same institution. During the subsequent academic year, Aled worked closely with a wide range of students on tasks from GCSE and A Level mathematics courses at the outstanding* Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College.
Currently in the third year of his PhD at Cardiff University, Aled’s research interests lie in the realm of combinatorial optimisation. In particular, his PhD aims to improve existing worst-case upper bounds for the proximity of a solution to an Integer Linear Program from the approximate solution (obtained by solving the related Linear Program).
Throughout the two previous academic years, Aled has delivered tutorials for several undergraduate mathematics modules at Cardiff University. These have been for the modules entitled Geometry, Elementary Differential Equations, Foundations 1 and Finance 1. Aled is delighted to be joining the mathematics department as a class teacher at the London School of Economics this year.
