I am the interim Head of School for Computing, Mathematics and Digital Technology. My substantive post is the Head of Division: Computer Science and Information Systems. I have a research background in Artificial Intelligence with a PhD in Artificial Neural Networks. My teaching interests centre on Software Development and I have recently taught courses in Data Structures and Algorithms, Comparative Programming languages and applied courses such as Website Development and Mobile Application Development. In recent years I have concentrated on creating collaborations and knowledge exchange between universities and industry with a focus on the SME sector. I have led several large projects funded by Innovate UK, the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts, and the European Research Council. I am on the organising committee for the Manchester Raspberry Pi Jam and sit on the BCS Manchester branch committee.
