I’m a Lecturer and Staff Tutor in the School of Computing and Communications. I joined the OU as a part-time module tutor in 2018 and have tutored on computing modules at all levels. I became a Lecturer/Staff Tutor in 2021. As a Staff Tutor, I support groups of module tutors on TT284 Web Technologies, TM352 Web, Mobile & Cloud Technologies, TM359 Systems Penetration Testing and practice tutors on Degree Apprenticeships in England and Wales.
Prior to joining the OU, my career as an IT professional was largely in the public sector (Civil Service then Local Government and NHS including all blue light services) before moving into roles supporting the third sector.
I studied Computing and Psychology as an undergraduate at the OU.
I am the Qualification Lead for the Applied Software Engineering Degree Apprenticeship in Wales and a member of the Module Teams for TM359 Systems Penetration Testing and TM252, the new Web Technologies module.
My current teaching commitments are with TT284 Web Technologies and TM470 The Computing & IT Project. Previously, I have tutored on TM129 Technologies in Practice, TM254 Managing IT and TM352 Web, Mobile & Cloud Technologies.
