Hi, I'm based in the UK, in Greater London.
My current interests are genealogy, history - especially economic history, text retrieval technology, natural language processing. I have researched at the National Archives in Kew on old Admiralty records for some time.
My background includes electronic circuit design, programming (Pascal, Delphi, Visual Basic .NET), college lecturer (Communications, microelectronics, IT, software engineering), industrial training, serial entrepreneur, director. I am a professional engineer (MIET), with a patent in electronics field, member BCS and IOD.
- I have started the Manby Mortar article, my ancestors were in HM Coastguard.
- Minor edits to George William Manby and Her Majesty's Coastguard articles.
