about me

I am a Professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Auckland. I initially completed an BA in Philosophy/Psychology, followed by an MA(Hons) in Philosophy, focused on metaphysics, logic, theory of mind and theory of language, before joining the Computer Science department in a teaching role in 1995. I subsequently completed a BSc, Postgraduate Certificate of Academic Practice, and a PhD in Computer Science Education. I am currently (2020-2022) the Associate Dean Teaching and Learning for the Faculty of Science.

I was very fortunate to have spent my childhood on Waiheke Island in the Hauraki Gulf in Auckland. I live in Auckland with my wife, three children and one cat.
