My Times as a Student
My 'student career' began way back in 1978, when I started the ONC/HNC route to become a Graduate of the Royal Society of Chemistry, graduating from Stoke Polytechnic in 1985.
A shift in direction in the late '80's put me on the IT track, starting the ONC/HNC route once again, graduating from Staffordshire University with a 1st in Applied Computing in 1996.
I graduated (again!) with an M.Res in IT for Strategic Management in 2003
I completed my Post Graduate Certificate in Higher & Professional Education (PGCHPE) in 2007.
I have had six papers published, at ICEIS 2004, ICEIS 2005, AIDIS 2007and at APIIT 2008
Initially I began my working life as a research and analytical chemist for the MoD, before moving to the NHS as a Network Manager. I then moved to the private sector, as a project manager, eventually being promoted to IT Strategy Manager.
In 2003 I was a part time lecturer, supervising HND & BSc Final Year Project students.
I am a Senior Lecturer lecturing full time in Forensic Computing at Staffordshire University, being the Scheme Leader for Forensic Computing and Security Technologies
