Florian Wulfert

Dr Florian Wulfert PhD, BS, MS

Senior Lecturer


Florian joined the teaching team in August 2010 for all things mathematical/statistical within the department. Alongside the teaching of numerical skills, Florian is also very interested in the integration of new electronic and/or web-based teaching tools into the current curriculum.


Florian studied Chemistry first at the University of Bern (CH) and later at the University of Amsterdam, he then continued in Amsterdam with his PhD in Chemometrics. After that Florian worked for a research organisation (TNO, NL), academia (University of Nottingham, UK) as well as industry (Mars Petcare, UK), applying his chemometric skills in a variety of areas such as Systems Biology, Metabonomics, Process optimisation, Food Science, Sensometrics, Consumer studies, Product development etc… 


Module leader for Maths for the preparatory year, Professional and Scientific Practice (Year 1), Research Design and Dissemination (Masters), Research Methods and Statistics (Masters). Also teaching within various other modules and statistical support to students for their undergraduate and postgraduate research projects.
