Immediately below are the formal qualifications, both achieved and underway, that are relevant in relation to the ‘Business’ page of this site. I’ve accumulated a ton of other wall paper over the years, some listed towards the bottom of this page.

MSc Advanced Security & Digital Forensics

2021, Edinburgh Napier University
The program title above is linked to the relevant University web page for more information

The MSc Advanced Security & Digital Forensics dissertation involved the use of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing in relation to the analysis and classification of potentially malicious emails. Most of the work was carried out with the Python machine learning library SciKit-Learn and the NLP library SpaCy. The Anaconda Navigator distribution of Python was used. The WEKA Machine Learning Workbench, developed at the University of Waikato New Zealand and written in Java, was used for comparative purposes.

And many other short courses in for example sales and sales management. Held PRINCE2 Project Management accreditation but have not re-validated. Also not forgetting a BSc in Natural Sciences (Dublin Institute of Technology) in the early years – still frequently useful in situations where scientific awareness helps.
