I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science and Engineering. I hold a BA Honours degree in Business Administration and an MSc degree in Information Systems. I have extensive experience in the Higher Education. I have many years of teaching, course management and supervision experience. I have also taken on leadership roles on student employability. I am currently the Director of Employability for the School of Computer Science and Engineering.
I am member of the University Research Centre for Parallel Computing (CPC). Since I joined the CPC, I worked on the European CloudSME (Cloud-based Simulation Platform for Manufacturing and Engineering) project. The CloudSME project developed a Cloud-based simulation solution for manufacturing and engineering SMEs where I worked as the Requirements Expert. I am currently working on the EU H2020 CloudiFacturing (Cloudification of Production Engineering for Predictive Digital Manufacturing) project that brings and progresses advanced information and communications technology in the field of cloud-based modelling and simulation, data analytics for online factory data, and real-time support to European manufacturing SMEs. My role in the CloudiFacturing project again relates to the collection and analysis of requirements.
I have nearly 20 years of experience in teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. My teaching has focused on analysis, design, development and management of Information Systems. I have extensive experience in teaching modules related to the following areas:
- Requirements Analysis and Engineering
- Systems Analysis and Design
- Strategic Management of Information Systems
- Rapid Application Development
- Database Systems
- Information modelling
- Information systems development methodologies
I am currently the module leader of the following modules:
- Modelling Requirements
- Strategic Management of Information Systems.
I supervise undergraduate and postgraduate projects/thesis.
My main research interests focus around the development, use and management of complex Information Systems. I am specifically interested in the application of Cloud Computing and High Performance Computing, Requirements Engineering, Strategic Planning for Information Systems, and technology-driven Business Models.
