Summary

I currently work for the Airwave Health Monitoring Study, reporting to the Principal Investigator, Prof. Paul Elliott.

My principal responsibilities include:

  • Database Manager for the processing and storage of the Study's Oracle database.  All the research data collected by the Study are loaded and linked in Oracle, then exported for analysis using specialist statistical tools.
  • Commercial aspects of the Study, including budgeting, invoicing and contracts.
  • Technical operation of the Study's biorepository, situated at the College's Hammersmith Campus.

Before joining Imperial College, I was the principal design authority for the Cerillion-IBAS interconnect billing system, a position I had held since its inception in 1996. I wrote the specification for the first three major releases of IBAS, project-managed its implementation and contributed a large amount of the program code.

Prior to that, I worked in the management consultancy practice of Coopers & Lybrand's for three years, and in a variety of technical roles for International Computers Limited (ICL) since graduating from UCL (Astronomy & Physics, BSc.) in 1985.
