Teaching, Recruitment and Outreach Associate.
I'm course director of the BSc (Hons) Digital and Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship. I also teach cyber security, networking and object orientated programming. Another major part of my role is establishing and managing articulation agreements with international partner universities. Additionally, I also manages outreach activities with schools and other universities. My research interests are in artificial intelligence and cyber security.
I obtained a First Class BSc (Hons) in Software Engineering from the University of Glasgow in 2008. Subsequently, I obtained a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Strathclyde in 2014 with a thesis titled "Algebraic Methods for Incremental Maintenance and Updates of Views within XML Databases". Throughout my PhD I co-founded CoderDojo Scotland, which is part of a global collaboration that provides free coding clubs to young people. Out with the university I have developed and delivered educational computer science content and workshops for organisations worldwide, including Google, Oracle, Glasgow Life, Makeblock and the BBC. I've also written several books on Python programming for children.
