For a number of years I pursued parallel careers of school teaching, computing consultancy and university research and lecturing. My various activities converged on a full time academic career in 1985 when my school-motivated research in mathematics and language morphed into a ten year MoD funded research project in Artificial Intelligence.
At the University of Westminster, I have recently moved on from 15 years of managing various academic departments in Mathematics and Computing to develop my faculty’s international and UK collaborations.
I was keen to carry on my connection with schools and became a governor at QK, a school historically linked with my University, in 1994, staying the course with colleagues to provide some stabilising continuity supporting the school through radical changes to school status, an ambitious new build and a range of other leadership and management challenges.
My abiding passion is providing all young people with the educational opportunities to make the best of themselves.
I am also on the Board for SHAK (South Hampstead and Kilburn Partnership Community Trust) a charity supporting Adult Learning and Youth Work.
I enjoy spending my spare time as a career coach and mentor. My spare time allows me to enjoy my passion for films and recently I completed a short course on Documentary Film Making.
