I am a Programme Manager at EPCC. I joined in April 2003 as an Applications Consultant after completing a PhD in Computational Statistical Physics on the subject of Spin Glasses. Since 2003 I've been involved in a broad cross-section of EPCC's work, from commercial data mining to HPC simulations of fusion reactors. I've also been closely involved with EPCC's training and education activities.

Recently, my work has concentrated more in the area of Data Science, and I've worked on projects related to data infrastructures, data management, data preservation and data-intensive computing. I'm involved in two Masters programmes:

MSc in Data Science, Technology & Innovation - A part-time, online programme delivered by multiple schools across the University, including EPCC.
On this programme I'm the Programme Director, Senior Tutor and the Course Organiser of Practical Introduction to Data Science.

MSc in High Performance Computing / MSc in High Performance Computing with Data Science - An on-campus programme delivered by EPCC through the School of Informatics.
On this programme I'm a Personal Tutor and a Course Organiser for Fundamentals of Data Management.

Until recently, I was also involed in the BioExcel project which is establishing a Centre of Excellence for Computational Biomolecular Research.

I'm also currently managing EPCC's contribution to the EPSRC-funded SAINT project and a couple of other data science training activities including creating and delivering bespoke data science courses. 

I have also recently managed EPCC's work on the WASP project (which is building a database of a certain kind of chemical structures and coupling this to an HPC simulation) and worked on the PERICLES project which is researching ways to improve digital preservation.

I also occasionally post to my blog.
