Michael Warby is a lecturer in Mathematical Sciences and he is a member of BICOM (Brunel institute of Computational Mathematics). He completed an undergraduate degree in Mathematics at the University of Kent in 1980 and he then moved to Brunel University London to do a MSc in Numerical Analysis which was completed in 1981. He then stayed at Brunel to do a PhD with the title \"Bergman kernel methods and the numerical conformal mapping of simply and doubly connected domains\" which was completed in 1984. In 1984 he then joined BICOM as a Post Doc and during the 1980s and 1990s he worked on several projects all of which have involved using the finite element method and several projects have been partly funded by companies who use the thermoforming process. Work in this area continued when he became a lecturer when he was a principal investigator of the EPSRC funded project ``Computational Modelling of Thermoforming and In-Mould-Decoration Processes\'\' during 1999--2002 which involved the company Autotype.

With a reasonably broad mathematical and computational background and with many years of experience with programming he has taught a wide range of modules.
