Biography

After obtaining a BSc and MSc in Mathematics, I started work as a commercial scientist modelling heat flow through metals using analytical and numerical methods. Following this I led the development of a computer-aided design software package which was sold commercially to mechanical engineering companies and used as an aid to technical drawing and design. By this time I was interested in Computing as a subject area, and so moved to my first job as a lecturer in Computer Science at (what was then) Hatfield Polytechnic. After only two years at Hatfield I moved on to lecturing at City University, where I obtained a PhD by Publication. My research there in the area of Artificial Intelligence led to contract research with the Civil Aviation Authority and later NATS Ltd. This involved formalising air traffic separation criteria for flight plans over the North Atlantic. After 8 years in London I moved to Huddersfield where I hold the Chair of Software Technology.

When not being an academic, I am a fell runner, taking part in local races. I also sing and perform locally in various groups, both A cappella and with instruments.
