Having completed a first degree in Computing in Business I joined the University of Huddersfield as a research assistant in September 1990, working with Dr Adrian Jackson on a project entitled "An Educational Integrated Project Support Environment". At the same time I registered for my own PhD on the complimentary topic, "Software Development Methods for Educational Use".

At the end of the research project I was offered some part time teaching, while also working on short contracts for various organisations. This allowed me to complete the PhD, which was confirmed in 1994.

After a brief stint in industry I returned to the university as a full time lecturer in 1995. Since then I have worked in the School of Computing and Engineering as a senior lecturer in software engineering. I teach programming, systems modelling, and software engineering, and have a particular interest in distributed and client server systems development.

Outside work I am a keen Huddersfield Town fan, I am interested in black and white photography, and I’m an avid reader.
