Personal profile


My career in software development dates back to 1979, and includes commercial systems, manufacturing, healthcare and financial services, and also three years of lecturing in Computer Science at the National University of Science and Technology, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. An MSc at Edinburgh University in Knowledge Based Systems was followed by time spent applying expert system and neural network technologies in industry. I have led teams of Java developers in financial services, and developed special interests in application security, development best practice and software quality assurance. My hope is to contribute some of the disciplines of effective software development to the Jalview project.
