Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology



Since April 1997, when Robin Ansell was recruited as IT Manager, in an academic-related post, for the Institute of Biotechnology, he has always been passionate about delivering the best in IT solutions in a friendly and accessible way for his colleagues. 

Whether it was deploying one of the early wireless network systems within the Institute of Biotechnology, or creating the web-based “Transferable Skills” courses, which were highly commended by the School of Technology, the production of multimedia video content, which allowed academics to remotely participate in conferences abroad, where otherwise they would not have been able to attend, Robin has always delivered solutions with a forward-thinking approach and in a timely manner.

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 more recently his podcast production company startup (Podcast Incubator).  With such a range of interests, Robin is especially mindful in not allowing his outside interests to overlap with his university career path and role.

To date, Robin has been involved externally in the filming, production and post-production on over 350 video projects, 37 podcasting projects, and has exhibited and sold his artwork worldwide.
