I am a senior lecturer at the School of Computing and Mathematics at Keele University. I graduated with a BEng (Hons) degree in Electronic Engineering (Systems) from the University of Sheffield in 2000 and a PhD in Computer Science from Plymouth University in 2004. Between 2004 and 2007 I worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the university of Essex. I joined Keele University in 2007. My research interests lie in the fields of biologically-inspired robotics, data-mining/machine-learning, systems modelling and computer science education. I have applied my knowledge and experience in the areas of health and rehabilitation, chemistry, biology, medicine and learner analytics. In addition, I have provided consultancy to external companies.

A list of my academic publications.

The Robotics Lab. Details of my past and present robotics research labs.

Biologically-inspired Robotics research. Ongoing work with colleagues on bio-inspired models of brain networks that are thought to play significant role in the navigation abilities of animals. The models are applied to real robots.

The Robot Simulator project. This is a simple simulator of the Mark III robot that is created using the Java programming language. Its primary objective is to help teach computer language programming principles in Java.
