Neil Rogers 

While preparing for my Viva I am working on the SlideWiki project. I have also been mentoring on the Digital Accessibility and Inclusive Learning Moocs on Future Learn. 

I am currently a PhD candidate at the university and have submitted my thesis. I have over ten years’ experience in the news media and publishing sectors. While 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. During this time I gained considerable technical production expertise for automated digital content. I gained a Masters by Research in Computer Science with distinction and qualified in December 2012.
