Dr. John Watt

John is a Grid engineer for the National e-Science Centre Hub at the University of Glasgow, which he joined in early 2002. Since May 2004 he has been working with advanced Privilege Management Infrastructures (PMIs) for the DyVOSE project utilising the PERMIS access control software. He also contributes to various Shibboleth-enabling projects across the UK, and helped establish a masters-level Grid computing module at Glasgow which has completed its second year.

Prior to Grid Computing, he worked at Kymata Optoelectronics (Livingston) as an embedded software engineer for passive optical device subsystems. He holds a BSc. in Physics and a Ph.D in Experimental Particle Physics, both from the University of Glasgow.
