After taking a first in electronic engineering at the University of Southampton, I stayed on to complete a PhD in computer science, before moving to the University of Bath to take up a post-doctoral position and then finally going "out into industry".
Over the years I have had a very varied career; working for some huge multinational companies, a couple of start-ups and several medium-sized businesses: in areas including image processing, 3D graphics, face detection, machine learning, parallel processing and cloud computing.
As a scientist, an engineer and a leader, I have always had a strong interest in technology and people. It is so rewarding to work with enthusiatic people on technical problems and their career development. I hope to continue for many years to come.
My wife and I currently live in Guildford, and we have two sons who are both studying STEM subjects at University.
