Graham Murphy

Graham is a Senior Teaching Fellow in Financial and Actuarial Mathematics.  Following completion of his postgraduate studies in homological algebra and representation theory, Graham spent several years working in the financial sector for an investment consulting firm.  During this time Graham became a fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.  He took as position at the University of Leeds in 2015 and is now involved in undergraduate teaching in actuarial science, financial mathematics and related statistics.  Graham also acts as the University of Leeds liaison officer to the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.

Graham’s interest in teaching and pedagogical research began during his postgraduate studies where he was encouraged to lead tutorial groups for first year students across a range of mathematical subjects.  A desire to share and disseminate knowledge has been a consistent motivation in his time in the consulting industry and his return to a teaching role in higher education.

Graham’s current activities involve extending the level of professional accreditations offered to mathematics students and he has been involved in the redevelopment of key modules to achieve this.  He is also interested in the development of e-assessment in mathematics, methods of delivering teaching and development of students’ overall employability.
