General Experience

I have experience as a cataloguer and as a science and IT subject specialist working at Reading and Bournemouth University libraries. I subsequently moved into software development specialising in online information retrieval, working for many years for Bristol and Manchester Universities. I still practice software development in this area in a part-time capacity.

I also qualified as a Yoga teacher in 2009 and have since further qualified in teaching Restorative Yoga for relaxation and wellbeing. This brings with it a general knowledge of the areas of health and wellbeing as well as related subjects such as Hindu philosophy, Sanskrit, Anatomy and Physiology.

My degree was in Physics with Astrophysics and I maintain an interest in all areas of science and, in particular, am a keen amateur astronomer.

I have further interests in the areas of folk music, craft, natural history, gardening and literature.
