Neil Rogers

Postgraduate research student


I have over ten years’ experience in the news media and publishing sectors. I also have technical production expertise for automated digital content, alongside a wide variety of transferable IT skills and software experience. Whilst working in the publishing sector I gained over six years’ experience as a Production Manager. I was responsible for overseeing the production of more than 20 major publications per year. In addition to this, I graduated in December 2012 at the University of Southampton, and gained a Masters by Research in Computer Science with distinction.
