I joined the KBC in January 2006 after completing my part-time PhD studies at InfoLab21’s Computing Department in Reflective Middleware with the Next Generation Middleware Group. Since then, I have helped set up and run the InfoLab21 Student Academy which primarily offers regional Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) an opportunity to leverage the academic and student resource within InfoLab21’s School of Computing and Communications. My role in the KBC involves technical supervision of the students in order to ensure all agreed deliverables such as ICT solutions, products, services, and infrastructure are completed on time, within budget and to a high standard.
Before joining the KBC, I worked in industry for two years as a Systems Analyst with a leading multinational consumer goods manufacturer. I then joined the Computing Department where I worked on a number of EU funded projects as a Researcher for a period of five years.
