Before studying for his undergraduate degree, Oliver gained valuable experience in the music and entertainment industry. The combination of these experiences led to an interest in finance and developing a deeper understanding of how to finance businesses. After completing his undergraduate degree, he worked for a global bank focusing in business banking for medium and large businesses within the South Yorkshire region.

Having moved back into academia for postgraduate studies, he developed an interest for research in Education and Technology (technology use in educational research and educational technology) with particular emphasis on Web2.0 and mobile technologies, Andragogy & Heutagogy and through Ph.D study a focus on eye-tracking in natural environments. Oliver’s current teaching focus is on the work based projects and project management.
