Senior Lecturer in Programming and Games Development

I’m a passionate developer who loves coding for various products and scenarios. Apps, websites, and databases all interest me but there’s nothing quite like programming a game, bringing together all your computer science knowledge with a splash of your own creative flair.

I am Programme Leader for BSc (Hons) Game Development with a focus on programming techniques, algorithms, mechanics, design patterns and practical 3D game creation.

Teaching and supervision

I teach core game development modules on BSc (Hons) Game Development, specifically:

  • Game Development (CET141)
  • Rapid Game Prototyping (CET243)
  • Game Showpiece (CET376)


I am currently studying for my PhD with an interest in immersive technologies (such as virtual and augmented reality, VR/AR) and their applications to training medical professionals (such as nurses and paramedics).

I also have an interest in the use of VR and AR for wider applications but in particular related to human-machine interfaces or general teaching and learning.
