I joined Kingston University in 2009 as a senior lecturer, having completed my undergraduate and PhD studies at the same. My academic teaching responsibilities are primarily linked to modules covering database systems, software engineering, Java programming and software development practices at BSc(Hons) and MSc levels. I also work as the Course Director for the Software Engineering, Computer Science and Information Systems courses. My research interests are on clinical databases, data mining-visualisation techniques, business process modelling and software quality assurance. I also have experience in designing data set specifications, extraction, processing and analysis of routinely collected data.
The primary research interest is on the representation of primary care consultation tasks using business analysis process models to support information system solutions. This also involves investigations into techniques for data mining, observation and modelling of primary care consultation workflows, and also quality assurance and process improvements within the primary care settings. I also have experience in designing data set specifications, extraction, processing and analysis for epidemiological research projects using routinely collected clinical data. My other teaching and research interests are on information systems and services, databases, web-databases, web technologies and object oriented programming techniques.
