I am a final year student at University of Canterbury having completed a Bachelor of Science in Management Science/Operations Research.  I am currently completing a Bachelor of Commerce, Honours in MS/OR at the University of Canterbury and am at present seeking employment for next year.


The University of Canterbury Honours Management Science course is a rigorous, 9 month course involving both class work and real-life analysis.  As part of the Honours course, I am involved in a consulting-style project with a local firm.  With the aid of a fellow student, we provide around 500 hours of analysis and advice, using a variety of Operations Research techniques.


I am a very self-disciplined person, with determination, initiative and strong self-motivation.  I lead an active healthy life-style and enjoy keeping fit with running and swimming.  I have a friendly personality, with an ability to relate to a wide range of people, and I feel comfortable in most situations.  As a mature student with a family, I feel I offer a wide range of skills and abilities such as good time management, teamwork, and above all an ability to look on the lighter side.


If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I invite you to view my Curriculum Vitae
