Welcome to my home page.

I am a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham. At the moment (Aug 2011 - present) I am on secondment to our Malaysia campus (University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus - UNMC). I hold the position of Vice-Provost (Research and Knowledge Transfer) and am responsible for delivering the strategic aims of the university in research and knowledge transfer at this campus.

I am a member of the Automated Scheduling, Planning and Optimisation Group (ASAP) in the School of Computer Science.

I am a Fellow of the British Computer Society (which allows me to use the post-nominal letters FBCS after my name) and a Fellow of the Operational Research Society (which allows me to use the post-nominal letters FORS after my name).

Before becoming an academic I worked in the IT industry for almost 20 years. I worked for two companies in that time. Between 1977 and 1988 I worked for the Co-operative Wholesale Society (CWS), firstly in Goldalming (Surrey), then in Woolwich (South London) and finally at their Head Office in Manchester. During that time, I held a number of positions; starting as a computer operator and eventually holding a variety of managerial positions including Production Manager, Service Manager and Technical Support Manager.

Between 1988 and 1994 I worked for Provincial Insurance (which is now part of AXA) in Kendal (Cumbria, in the Lake District). In the time with the company I held the position of Operations Support Manager.
