Photograph of meI am a Unix & Windows computer systems administrator, currently working for Division A (Energy, Fluid Mechanics and Turbomachinery) in Cambridge University Engineering Department. This division includes lots of work on aircraft, including the Silent Aircraft project.

I enjoy analysing systems with complex interactions, and this has led me to delve the depths of Linux Kernel, Xlib and other software. My home page at Unix Support contains some of the results of this curiosity.

When I was a student, I worked for the Department of Experimental Psychology in the summer vacation translating an experiment into a computerised version. Some of the work I did was still in use years after it was written.

I also worked on updating Stephen Hawking's voice synthesizer, changing it from a 30 year old hardware board to an emulated version of that board.
