In this year’s Coventry Christmas Lecture Sophie will bring to life the wonders of mathematics and statistics and the important, but often overlooked, role each has in optimising your enjoyment of the festive season. From decorating the house, waiting for the presents to arrive or spending time with friends (including eating mince pies…) come and join in to see how maths can make Christmas even more fun.

With in-depth experience of analytical, statistical and problem structuring techniques, Sophie supports clients by developing pragmatic and robust solutions.

She prefers fresh coffee over tea, pears over apples and her favourite flower is the tulip.
