About

After graduation from the University of Dundee in Scotland, Rob took up his first post with BAE Systems (formerly British Aerospace) based at Warton Aerodrome, Lancashire, in the north west of England. Within the organisation, he worked in the Technical Directorate on large-scale, high-technology and state-of-the-art projects supporting the design and manufacture of aircraft, including: the multi-billion pounds (GBP) Al Yamamah Project, and the multi-billion pounds (GBP) UK Government & Pan-European Project (including Germany's Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm, and Italy's Airitalia, as partners).

Rob is currently a senior lecturer and business projects supervisor (undergraduate and postgraduate) in the University of Roehampton Business School in the area of business research, creative technologies, and related topics concerned with the support of business functions of organisations. He is a member of the School's Centre for Organisational Research (COR) and its Organising Creativity special interest group.

Rob has been invited to join various research conference programme committees and contributes to real-world case studies in prominent, best-selling publications in 'digital organisation management'.

He is currently an external examiner at two UK HEFCE-funded universities in the areas of research methods and research dissertations, at Glyndwr University Business School (MBA Programme), and also at the University of West London (BSc Programmes) in the areas of data and knowledge management.

Rob maintains a profile which describes some of his professional interests as part of the LinkedIn network - details there include networks which he is a member of, including the BAE Systems Employee & Alumni Network and the Oxford University Software Engineering Programme.
