Welcome to my home page.
I have been a Lecturer in the Engineering Management within the Department
of Electronics at the University of
York since 1993. Prior to that I spent 18 years in Industry as an
electronic design engineer, technical manager and programme manager for
a number of different companies.
In addition to lecturing and administration within the Department (I am
currently Deputy Head of the Department of Electronics) I carry our research
into Engineering Education and Entrepreneurship.
In addition to my Departmental activities I am also:
- Provost of Alcuin
College – The website includes information for current and
prospective students staff and Alumni. Also included is a lot of information
on health and welfare, sports at York and matters academic, please take
a look and explore.
- York Director of the White Rose Centre
for Excellence in Teaching in Learning in Enterprise – The
CETL is a HEFCE funded initiative providing capital funds to establish
an Enterprise Zone and recurrent funds over 5 years to take the enterprise
agenda forward across all disciplines.
- President of the European Association
for Education in Electrical and Information Engineering –
The EAEEIE is dedicated to supporting educators across the breadth and
depth of the Electrical and Information Engineering disciplines. I am
in the first of 3 years of Presidency; please take a look at my page
for an overview of my vision for my period as President and then to
the Association web site itself.
- Honorary Secretary of the York Philatelic Society – Well everyone
is allowed an anorak! Mine is the study of early Australian Commonwealth
postage stamps. Our website is very embryonic at the moment but please
contact me if you are interested.
This site provides links to all the above areas, to all my teaching
resources, to papers published and projects I am associated with. If your
interest area overlaps with mine please get in contact with me.
