Personal information

I was born in Birmingham and grew up in Clevedon, a seaside town near Bristol. I came to Leicester in 1983, graduated with a BSc in Chemistry with Geochemistry, and joined the Engineering Department in 1989.  For most of this time I worked as a Computer Officer, changing job title to Senior Teaching Fellow in 2013 and to Lecturer in 2014.

In 2009 I graduated again, with a BA in Humanities with Philosophy from the Open University.  In 2013 I completed an MA in Philosophy with the OU, with a dissertation on Philip Pettit's republican political theory.
