About.

INSPIRED BY SCIENCE.

I am an award winning university mature graduate, having completed a Tech Partnership Gold Degree program. This combines IT, digital transformation and project management with business skills. My passion is in using digital skills to provide outstanding customer service, solve challenges and to generate new and innovative solutions with exceptional outcomes. I focus is on the use of technology to support businesses in gaining and maintaining competitive advantage.

My primary interests are in computer science, human-computer interaction, information systems, the internet of things and cyber security. Specifically, I am enthused to understand how the principles of computer science support and combine with information systems to create both user and business benefits. Additionally, I understand the vital role that computer science plays in the future of the UK economy. Therefore, I intend to help to address the current UK digital skills shortage by becoming a leader in software innovation and by developing future talent.

In my former career in the healthcare sector I worked in management positions such as operations management and business development, I became acquainted with software solutions via medical, productivity and staff management software. This sparked an interest in how bespoke applications could benefit the workplace in addition to stakeholders and customers.

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION.

There is more to developing websites and applications than just good coding. It is essential to combine digital activity with strong leadership to turn technology into transformation. In other words, the way that technology is implemented and used should have focus on both business and user benefits.

THE USER MUST COME FIRST.

In applying the principles of human computer interaction in all of my work, I ensure a user-first experience throughout. The way that websites and applications function on desktops, tablets, laptops and mobile devices is fundamentally different. Therefore, I always apply a mobile-first design that gives the simplest and most efficient interface for the user. This is particularly important as over 80% of website visits are now on mobile devices.
