in e-Science in the Department of Computing at Imperial College
London and Technical Director of the London
e-Science Centre (LeSC) also based at Imperial. His early
research work was in Computational Underwater Acoustic Modelling
at the Department of Aeronautics at Imperial College. He moved
to the Imperial College Parallel Computing Centre in 1998 where
he developed the Centre’s research and equipment portfolio
through collaborative projects with the College’s main
computational users. He led the Centre’s research activity
– the Imperial College e-Science Networked Infrastructure
– a service oriented architecture built using Java and
Jini that provided a gateway to other infrastructures.
