My career spans 51 years, comprising 27 years spent working in the automotive industry (Ricardo, Fiat and Suzuki) and 24 years working in the education sector. For 11 years I was Director of Automotive Engineering within the Faculty of Engineering, Kingston University, London. As a result of University restructuring in 2011, I took a senior Faculty post in addition to my role as an Associate Professor of Automotive Engineering.
I am a Professional Review Assessor/Chair for the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), an Academic Accreditation Chair for the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and member of the IET Academic Accreditation Committee.
