I have been working at Southampton Solent University since 2009. Prior to teaching at Solent, I have worked in industry for over 10 years, most recently as a research and development engineer, working within the field of industrial computer based automation and control systems, collaborating with industrial partners in the military, medical, transport, oil & gas, and scientific research sectors. I have degrees in mathematics and electronic engineering, and a postgraduate teaching certificate in higher education.
I occasionally assist colleagues in various research projects across the engineering disciplines on an as required basis. Alongside my regular teaching duties I am currently also undertaking an MSc, within the field of Physics, at University College London.
My current role at Solent is that of technician instructor (engineering). The role involves delivering (primarily) laboratory sessions and tutorials/seminars, and some lectures. I teach on a range of units that comprise the various engineering honours degree programmes, and related courses at Solent, including: (foundation/FHEQ Level 3): technology concepts & processes, (FHEQ Level 4): engineering mathematics, applied mathematics, and engineering principles, (FHEQ Level 5): measurement & control, automation & control, and quality & product development, (FHEQ Level 6): mechatronics, and final project.
