Technical Resources Manager
I began working with the University as trainee electronics technician in the then Department of Psychology rising to the position of Chief Technician within the Department. In 1995 I transferred to the Central Workshop Services as Electronics Supervisor and in 2004 was appointed Technical Resources Officer in the School of Engineering. In 2011 I was appointed Technical Resources Manager with responsibilities across the three Schools of Engineering, Geosciences and Natural & Computing Sciences.
My interest in electronics began at school and from an early point in my career developed a strong interest in technical computer developing software and hardware solutions for control, data acquisition and measurement.
In my current role I continue to keep up to date with electronics and technical computing and have recently created the control system for the underwater laser cutter being developed at the National Decommissioning Centre.
In 1996 I received an Award of Excellence from the Principal, Professor Maxwell Irvine, which remains a highlight of my career at the University.
