I started as a mature student at Wrexham Glyndwr University in 2007, graduating with a first-class honours degree in Computer networks in 2010. After a short spell as a software developer, I was awarded a studentship for full time PhD study in the area of Computer Networks and security, completing in late 2013.

Subsequently, I spent 2 years at Staffordshire University teaching undergraduate and master’s networks and security modules. Furthemore, I moved to University of Derby teaching a similar range of modules. After 18 months, I re-joined Wrexham Glyndwr University in February 2017 to help develop and deliver the new Cyber Security programme and existing Computer Networks degree. 

Aside from my interest in networks and security related topics, I also enjoy cycling and fitness activities in my spare time.
