About me

2022, Aug 17    

I am a Lecturer and PhD researcher in Education at Edinburgh University’s Moray House School of Education. I am currently leading teacher education in science and physics across primary and secondary sectors.

Before spending time in education, I held technical and commercial roles in military operations, aviation, IT, simulation and training. Trade certifications include Microsoft Certified Solution Developer (MCSD). My ongoing interests include intelligent automation and the potential this has in teaching and learning.

My professional designations include Chartered Physicist (CPhys), Chartered Scientist (CSci), fellow of the Institute of Physics (FInstP) and member of the Royal Aeronautical Society (MRAeS).

I am also a keen amateur photographer. You can see my photographs on a number of channels, including my own niximagery website. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society for Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (FRSA).

Other websites I write or host include tales of the family, The Natural Partners Project, and Kara Mudie’s photography site. Cullaloe.net is our server home, housing data services and the VPS.
