Dr James Denholm-Price

School/Department: Computer Science & Mathematics
Position: Associate Professor


I am an Associate Professor in Mathematics in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing at Kingston, elected academic member of the University's Board of Governors and collaborative researcher with colleagues and PhD students across the faculty in speech technologies, databases (supporting research in HIV and parasitology) and statistics (working with Professor Mark Fielder and other colleagues in microbiology).

At the same time, I am currently leading a UK Government InnovateUK "Knowledge Transfer Partnership" (KTP) with JPY Ltd and running projects in pedagogy and technology-enhanced learning using e-assessment and classroom technologies in mathematics education.

Before coming to Kingston I completed my BSc (in maths and astrophysics) and PhD (in dynamical meteorology) at Queen Mary University, London, a postdoc research post in Antarctic meteorology at the University of Sheffield and a research scientist post in Predictability and Ensemble Forecasting at the UK Met Office.
