Senior Lecturer

I am a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing (FEAM), specialising in electrical and electronic engineering. I have previously worked in a number of other roles, including mechanical engineering and network/IT management.

I have published a number of books, technical reports, magazine articles and web pages over the last twenty years, covering microprocessor-based systems, computer-aided design (CAD), office software applications, programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and extensible markup language (XML).

I am currently studying for a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) qualification.
