Steve will give a view on data storage from the inside of some of the key innovations that facilitated the growth of storage density and arguably underpinned the Information Age.
Graduating from the Cambridge University with an MA in Electrical Sciences, Steve joined IBM in 1982 as a logic designer working on test tools for displays and storage products. In a number of engineering and development management posts he spent 20 years developing storage devices and systems, leading IBM's storage virtualisation strategy and was appointed Chief Technology Officer for Storage for IBM UK. During this period Steve filed eleven patents for IBM.
Steve now leads IBM's University Relations activities in the UK , working with leading universities and higher education authorities to build strategic relationships and foster opportunities for collaborative research. He represents UK University Relations interests in IBM European and Corporate fora.
