Cross service senior developer database administrator


I am responsible for coordinating development and technologies across the digital resources portfolio and liaison with colleagues involved in technical development across the whole of the organisation.


Primarily a software engineer, and having a background in computer science, I have worked on many research and development projects including: computer aided software engineering for safety critical systems; SGML- and XML-based workflows for typesetting, publishing and printing of scientific and medical journals; repositories for learning and teaching materials with an involvement in the specification of standards for metadata, course and programme information and content aggregation, as well as dissemination.
