Personal profile

Academic Background

I graduated from UEA in July 1993 with a degree in Business Information Systems and gained a PhD in Computer Science in July 2000: Investigating Stakeholder Evaluation in Rapid Application Development.  My interests are in the whisky industry and in all human, philosophical and organisational elements of Information Systems, although when I joined the Norwich Business School I joined in a non-research capacity, so I have stopped publishing to concentrate upon teaching.  I am not looking to supervise research students at masters or doctoral level.

I have taught modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including MBA (both full-time and part-time).  Modules taught range from Introduction to Information Systems, Critical Issues in Supply Chain Management and Organisational Information Systems.   My full list of modules taught is:

-          Systems Analysis and Design (CMP)

-          Systems Engineering & Systems Engineering Issues (CMP)

-          Information System Fundamentals (CMP)

-          Introduction to Information Systems (CMP)

-          Human Computer Interaction/Human Issues (CMP)
