In the words of the Pet Shop Boys, "Doctored in mathematics, I could have been a don" (yeah, right...) so instead I'm working in statistics (or I was, until 2014). Now I'm working in a University, but not as a don. 2017 update - I'm now working in statistics in a University (but still not as a don)!
