Personal profile


I possess broad expertise in the application of statistical methods, machine learning, mathematical modelling, optimisation methods and control system theory.

I have accumulated considerable advanced technical engineering experience from periods spent in the power, aerospace and process industries. I have also worked within the academic sector on EPSRC funded research programmes, both at City University (London) and Strathclyde University (Glasgow).

I graduated from The City University, London, with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Electronics Engineering in 1986. Subsequently I gained a Masters Degree with Distinction in Control Engineering in 1993, again from City University. I was awarded a PhD in 1998 by the University of Strathclyde for research into supervisory control of power plants. I am a Chartered Engineer and Member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET UK)
