Michael is Technical Director of the IT Innovation Centre University of Southampton. He joined IT Innovation in 2000 after several years at Nortel Networks developing technologies to support telecommunications interoperability. He has over 15+ years’ experience of seeking new ways to achieve productivity, learning, and enjoyment using interactive media and Internet systems.

He has an international reputation as thought leader pioneering the evolution of information technologies for tackling important business and societal challenges. His has long term interests in the areas of user experience, interactive media, service-based systems, software defined infrastructures and digital innovation. He is experienced in defining vision for information technologies, technical strategy, technical roadmaps, software engineering and leadership of multi-disciplinary teams.

He's an expert software engineer with extensive knowledge of interactive media and service-oriented systems (mobile, edge/cloud, networks) working with creatives and engineers. He's hands-on, designing and implementing architecture and software solutions, APIs and resolving issues in experience, logic, data and performance. He's strategic and effectively communicate novel and complex propositions to different stakeholders especially when such propositions disrupt current thinking.

Collaborating with companies in the creative industries, education, healthcare, cloud and telecommunications, he can transform thinking, practice and business through compelling vision and user experience that's realised in the design and development of interactive media systems. To make that happen he’s secured over 20 contracts to the value of £5.5M for IT Innovation over the last 8 years. In recognition for his impact within Enterprise, Michael is a Professorial Fellow in Information Technology.

Michael is currently responsible for a set of projects advancing information technologies including a media service platform exploiting edge computing in smart cities using software-defined infrastructures and a serious games platform for digital games that teach children social skills in schools.
