Biography

Simon is an Associate Professor in the School of Computer Science, and Co-Director of the Data Science Apprenticeship in the Faculty of Science. Before joining the University of Nottingham, he worked at Brunel University London where he was Director of Learning and Teaching in the Department of Computer Science. Before becoming an academic, Simon also worked a Senior Consultant and Software Architect in the Financial Services Industry in London and Continental Europe.

Expertise Summary

Simon's current focus is on Innovation in Learning and Teaching. This includes the use of technology in education. Simon co-lead the introduction of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Digital Examinations to Brunel University London.

Teaching Summary

I am currently developing a Level 6 Data Science Apprenticeship which will be available from September 2020.
