With 35 years’ experience of working in Higher Education including over 30 years at UEL, I have held a very wide range of positions including module and course leaderships. I am currently the leader of the BSc (Hons) Computer Science degree and Academic Lead for all Undergraduate Computing Courses. From 2014 until 2017, I was Head of the Computer Science and Informatics Subject Area.

Prior to working in Higher Education, I was an analyst programmer at British Telecom, specialising in the development of COBOL and Assembly language applications for IBM mainframes. Using the skills that I acquired at BT, I undertook a three month volunteer placement in the Ministry of Finance in Managua, Nicaragua. My role involved the reverse engineering of a suite of Assembly language programmes which formed part of the Ministry's teaching payroll system.
