Profile Summary

Expert in Advanced Human Computer Interaction, Computer Programming and Learning Technologies I have over fifteen years experience as a Lecturer in user centered aspects of Computer Science.

Having taught large classes at all levels in Higher Education for over fifteen years, I am skilled in course design and management, marketing and engagement and pastoral care of students. My practical teaching skills are highly rated by students and I take a pragmatic approach to problem solving whilst working towards strategic goals.

I am an accomplished innovative researcher with an up to date record of publications which support my academic and practical work. I lead teaching innovation by example within group and encourage colleagues and students to expand their traditional approaches to learning. I have a talent for improving public impact of our work and enjoy organising and participating in public engagement activities to the benefit of my subject and the organisation.

I began my career in the mid 1980's as an Electrical Engineering technical apprentice for the international Oil and Gas Company, Schlumberger Limited. Following this I studied Electrical Engineering to the level of BEng (Hons), and then studied for an MSc in Computational Physics.

I came to Salford as a lecturer in 1998 following a three year Research Assistantship on a successful large scale Framework 4 European Union project (IMMP) investigating deployment issues with broadband multimedia services. I am especially interested in usability of state-of-the art technology such as the Internet, mobile devices, social media and future digital media.

I am a professional member of the British Computing Society and hold the status of Chartered IT Professional.
