About me NHS Head of Digital Delivery and Undegraduate Supervisor

👨‍💻 Digital Specialist

I'm a broad based digital specialist with a special interest in healthcare and government technology. This has included roles as a product owner, technical business analyst and user researcher (and even a short stint as a junior full-stack developer).

I am currently Head of Digital Delivery for NHS Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West ICB where I lead on delivery of digital projects to improve integration across the region. Before this I worked over at The PSC Digital where I helped to deliver impactful digital solutions for public services.

👨‍🏫 Academia

As of the 2023/24 academic year I supervise Software and Security Engineering at the University of Cambridge. I have also previously supervised Object Oriented Programming (22/23) and Operating Systems (22/23). If you're my supervisee and you're looking for your work - it's not here it's on Google Classroom!

Before supervising I honed my teaching skills at the University of Reading where I completed a PGCE (with QTS) in Secondary Computer Science teaching. My technical background comes from University of Cambridge (Homerton College) where I graduated with a first class BA in Computer Science. Whilst there I was the Vice-President External on the Homerton Union of Students and spent most of my time campaigning on the bus issue (again and again and ...).

UML arrows - WTH?!

When you teach, you reveal the world's lies. This weekend I've been dispelling the idea the words "universal" or "standard" should ever be written in the world of software - demonstrated through the medium of the arrows in Unified Modelling Language (UML) class diagrams.
