Essential details

Postgraduate: PhD, King's College London.
Undergraduate: BSc Computer Science, King's College London.

I am a Reader in Software Development at the Department of Informatics at King's College London where I lead the Software Development Team. Previously I was a Senior Lecturer at Middlesex University and before that a Senior Lecturer at Bournemouth University. I was an Associate Editor in Chief of IEEE Software (2008-2012) and am Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Object Technology. I am an EPSRC Fellow (2014–2019). I co-founded Elbatrop (2009–2015).

My main research interests surround programming languages and domain specific languages. One of my major contributions has been through the Converge programming language which allows syntactically distinct domain specific languages to be embedded in normal program files and compiled out at compile-time. My publications are available separately as is a larger list of the software I have written.
