Education Interests[edit]

Education and related matters. This is an outcome of the Postgraduate Certificate in Education study that I made at the University of York, includes some education research that I conducted in Uganda near Bwera in 1992, and then incorporates the teaching that I have done over the years in the British Education System, at Scalby School in Scarborough during the PGCE, and subsequently in Bretton Woods School near Peterborough, and finally (to date) at Amersham and Wycombe College, in Amersham, Buckinghamshire.

Software Engineering Interests[edit]

This is especially as related to Usability and Business Intelligence.

Economics Interests[edit]

Since my time studying Economics in Marlow at High School level, I have been interested as an armchair economist.

Mountaineering Interests[edit]

I love the non-flat places of the world. It was one of the reasons I was happy to leave Cambridgeshire.
