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.
