As a kid, Abdul was lifted out of poverty in India through a charitable education programme. This has given him a lifelong passion for education and science. He went on to win a scholarship to study Computer Sciences in Germany, and then led the software development team at science publisher BiomedCentral (Springer) for seven years. He is a software pragmatist, with a unique ability to deploy innovative technology while getting stuff done. Dad to 3 brilliant kids, Abdul has watched Frozen II six times with his daughters and will watch it again. He brings the same patience to working with Norbert and Trevor.
