Software Developer


Keri finished a BE in Mechanical in 1999 and a PhD in 2003, both from the University of Auckland. She travelled to London, Ontario, Canada to work in the Steinman group at the Robarts Research Laboratories, before moving to the University of Oxford, to work in the Fluidics and Biocomplexity group. There she taught undergraduate engineering as a member of Pembroke College, and completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education in 2008 with a dissertation entitled “Seeing and believing: intuition and visualisation in undergraduate engineering”.
