My current position is Project Delivery Manager for IISE. I was the Project Manager for creating the IISE research campus facility. During my employment with the University I have held several positions of responsibilities including: Head of Mechanical/Manufacturing and Resource Engineering Manager. During this time I project managed the engineering resource in terms of rebuilding the resource after a drastic fire. I project managed the resitting of Engineering to a new campus and amalgamating Art, Design and Engineering resources. Within the undergraduate programs I instigated several new innovative programmes including Product Design, Innovation and Marketing, integrated environmental aspects into all programs, and created the Motorsport Technology programme. In addition to this, all programmes are accredited within my department. My engineering experience was in maintenance of equipment for fully automated casting processes. I worked abroad on engineering projects on a voluntary basis to assist developing countries.
