Keith Lines

Keith Lines uses experience gained in over 25 years of working with NPL's scientists, administrators and support staff to help ensure that NPL activities in software development continue to meet the requirements demanded by NPL's ISO 9001 / TickITplus certification.

The application of mathematical methods to software systems is also an interest.


After graduating in 1988 from the University of Kent at Canterbury with a BSc (Hons) in Computer System Engineering, Keith worked there for two years as a research associate on a project concerning the application of mathematical methods to software systems.

Keith joined NPL in October 1990 and has worked since then in a variety of roles in software development and IT support.

He is a member of the British Computer Society.
