Project/Events Manager (Volunteer)
Dave started his professional career with a degree in Chemical and Polymer Engineering from Loughborough University and moved into Information Technology as companies started to introduce computer systems to their factories and offices.
This lead to a very interesting and enjoyable career of developing, managing and supporting business systems and technology in life sciences research and development in pharmaceuticals, the NHS and charities as a Project Manager, Business Analyst and Operations Manager. His favourite project was the implementation of a High Performance Compute (HPC) facility to support genome analysis for the Cambridge Research Institute - a joint development between Cambridge University, Addenbrooke’s Hospital and Cancer Research UK. The technology was easy – arranging to keep the facility cooled when all the systems started data analysis was more interesting.
Now retired (sort of) he has taken on a role of volunteer Project / Events Manager in Ring 20, though can still be seen, on occasions, cycling though the wilds of Essex and has a keen fascination for music, history and science fiction.
