My role as Assistant Head of School provides oversight of the Bachelor of Computing Systems (BCS), Graduate Diploma of IT, and the Postgraduate Diploma of IT/Master of IT (MIT) qualifications.

I have taught on the Bachelor and Master degrees in the Computing School on a wide variety of IT subjects including IT Management and E-Business. In 2015 I taught E-Business Strategies at OTH Regensburg in Germany as a face-to-face block course. I help provide mentoring support to all BCS and Diploma students in the School of Computing.

Coordinating our BCS final year Internships & IT Industry Projects is another of my key roles. The Computing School at EIT has a great track record of successfully launching students into IT careers through our internships and industry connections.

My research includes investigating ideal blended learning environments (Doctorate thesis), and I have presented research in this area in the USA and Asia. I also have a portfolio of work-integrated learning research investigating the graduate transition, and have tracked students through their internships and out into their first careers over a number of years. In 2010, I received the EIT CEO’s Research Excellence Award.

My professional IT industry experience includes working in an IT management role and using this experience I have co-authored research with students in the IT planning and management area, often helping students find a placement in the IT industry.
