Current positions

Senior Lecturer in Simulation Modelling, Mechanical Engineering Programme Leader


I am a Senior Lecturer, specialising in Computer Aided Design and Simulation modelling of Manufacturing Systems. I obtained my Master of Science degree from Strathclyde University in 1985, before starting to work at Napier University of Edinburgh, as a Teaching Company Associate in conjunction with Unisys. I have worked with a number of simulation packages in the past, including SEE-WHY and Siman/Cinema, and currently with ProModel. I have worked as a simulation analyst and have collaborated in various simulation research projects. My main interests are in the Process Simulation and Maintenance Operations Modelling. I am the Director of Industrial Placement (UK), responsible for helping and monitoring the placement of Aeronautical and Mechanical engineering students at the School of Computing, Science and Engineering. I also acted as the Programme Leader for the MSc in Manufacturing Systems and Management for many years.
