Staff Profile

John Nicholson

Senior IT Technician (SAgE - Maths & Stats, Physics)

Background

I'm an IT technician within the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics supporting both desktop systems and laboratory systems.

I've dabbled in computing for about 15 years with a BSc(Hons) in Information Systems from Newcastle University, where I graduated top of my class. The interest in IT started as my home computer began being troublesome so I got my hands in to it and began the process of dissecting it and repairing again.
