Dissertation

Leeds Beckett University
Dr Martyn Prigmore
Senior Lecturer
After studying Pure Mathematics and completing a PhD in logic, Martyn moved into IT, using a variety of database and visualization technologies and programming languages. Projects he has worked on range from the small (managing estate agent's "for sale" boards) to the very large (writing software to control the Eurostar Terminal). Working at Leeds Beckett has allowed Martyn to combine his love of mathematics and computer science in both his teaching and his research.
During my BSc, MSc and PhD I developed a love for problem solving and wanted a varied career, so I got a job as a programmer. My combination of mathematical and computing skills gave me a great start in the working world, allowing me to work on complex problems from train planning to electricity supply management.
