Biography

Graeme's  first degree is in civil engineering which he completed in 1987. He was a practicing civil engineer before joining the UEA to study for a masters degree  in computing in 1997. This was followed by PhD in data mining and a three year post doc in medical data mining.

From 2005 to 2008 Graeme trained as a maths teacher and taught maths and computing science in schools, colleges and at the UEA. In 2009 he joined CMP as a Lecturer in Computing Science.
