I am an RA, PhD Student, and TA Coordinator for the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University. My PhD supervisors are Andrew Scott and Paul Rayson When I'm not dealing with the lab teaching support of SCC's 55 modules, I'm working on my PhD in OS Support Frameworks for Computational Linguistics.
My previous research work and projects have spanned mechanical and electronic engineering, mobile development, software engineering, wireless networking, network infrastructures, linguistics, high-performance computing and operating system design.
My teaching activities have ranged from lab support through course planning and lecturing with all year groups at the university. My current focus is on management, scaling and structuring of the courses as the department continues to grow.
In December of 2017, I was awarded the Science and Technology Dean’s Award - Early Career Teacher of the Year (Note to self; photo here)
I also currently hold an MSci in Computer Science (with Industrial Placement) from SCC.
