Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology



Since being recruited as IT Manager in an academic-related post at the Institute of Biotechnology, Robin was always passionate about delivering the best in IT solutions and AV excellence in a friendly and accessible way for his colleagues. 

Whether deploying one of the early wireless network systems within the Institute of Biotechnology, or creating the web-based hybrid “Transferable Skills” courses (highly commended by the School of Technology), multimedia video content delivery, allowing academic colleagues to participate in conferences remotely, Robin has always delivered solutions with a forward-thinking approach.

As a Computer Associate at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, Robin takes great pleasure in meeting and interacting with his colleagues in helping them achieve their goals and realise their dreams.

Outside of the Department Robin has a wide range of interests including his career as an artist and photographer, video (production and post-production) and his podcast production company. 

With such a range of experience, skills, and interests, it was a natural and logical progression for Robin to be asked to take on the Audio Visual Lead role for the Department which utilised that skill and experience.

To date, Robin has been involved externally in the filming, production and post-production on over 750 video projects, 80 podcasting projects, and has exhibited and sold his artwork worldwide.
