Simon Shaw is a reader in the Brunel Institute of Computational Mathematics (BICOM – please see and in the School of Information Systems Computing and Mathematics. He was initially a craft mechanical engineering apprentice but (due to redundancy) left this to study for a mechanical engineering degree. After graduation he became an engineering designer of desktop dental X Ray processing machines, but later returned to higher education to re-train in computational mathematics. His research interests include computational simulation methods for partial differential Volterra equations and, in this and related fields, he has published over thirty research papers. He is currently involved in an interdisciplinary project that is researching the potential for using computational mathematics as a noninvasive means of screening for coronary artery disease.
