About me

I have a mixed background in electronic engineering and digital electronic fault finding within phototypesetters and industrial control gear. Programming of embedded devices and writing component level (sensor) device drivers has linked my interests within digital electronics and software throughout my life. I have also owned and ran a small Internet Service Provider which linked interests in digital communication and business. Ten years prior to arriving at the University of Lincoln to study a BSc in Computer Science, and then a MSc by Research, I had a “back to basics” semi self-sufficient lifestyle. This saw me becoming a very small-scale market gardener and selling home grown fruit and veg produce on a market stall (small scale farming).  The AgriFoRwArdS CDT was a logical step to not only bring many of my interests together but take them to a much higher level. I have continued with the University of Lincoln purely because both the staff and Agri-Robotic opportunities are fantastic.
