I am a Mechanical Engineer by training who converted to computing a bit later in life. I joined the department as a lecturer in year 2000. Over the years, I have taught subjects across the curriculum though currently I am more active in teaching programming, web programming, web services, and databases.
I am also the International Student Coordinator for the faculty. More often than not, international students do not have much time to adjust to a new academic culture. I am responsible for making sure that our international students have a good transition into the student and academic community. I am also a link tutor for courses that our department franchises to colleges and other universities within UK and in other countries.
In my role as the international coordinator, I get to closely work with students to develop and deliver support where it is required. For this, a lot of the time I get help from other students and so please contact me if you'd like to get involved.
