Thanks for taking time to visit my homepage. I have 30+ years experience working in the automotive industry, and I specialize in solving problems that lie at the interface between engineering and statistical science

In addition, I help clients develop and integrate quality strategies for failure mode avoidance in all areas of the business, but particularly their New Product Development process, working to detect and eliminate problems before they actually occur, which is often late in the project delivery, or worse still, with customers in the field. Click here for an overview of how I approach this.

For the consultancy services that I offer, please click on the link in the list on the left of this page; the other links give some more details about me, my credentials, and my work.

In the meantime, a little about me...

I am a Chartered Statistician (CStat) and Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS), London, and a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (FIMechE), London. I am also a senior member of the American Society for Quality, a Fellow of the American Statistical Association (as well as being accredited as a Professional Statistician - PStat), and an elected member of the International Statistical Institute. I have previously been a Vice President of the RSS, and Chairman of the Business and Industrial Section. I have now completed my second 4-year term on the Society's Council (2009-2013), and I served on the Executive Committee in 2011 & 2012.

In addition to my consulting work I am an  honorary professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick. From 2001-2008 I was the Henry Ford Technical Fellow for Quality Engineering at the Ford Motor Company, and from 2007-2010 I was the Director of the Quality and Automotive Safety Office at Jaguar Land Rover, and I am currently the Chief Analytics Officer at We Predict Ltd.
