Personal profile


I am a Principal Lecturer and Research and Innovation Lead for the School of Creative Technologies.   I also am Director of Postgraduate Taught Programmes for the School of Creative Technologies, where I oversee all Masters Curriculum development (MSc Creative Technologies and MSc Digital Media).  I also coordinate the postgraduate research programmes (PhD and MPhil) within the areas of Digital and Creative Technologies.

I completed my PhD in 2001, at the University of Portsmouth, focusing on Projection Augmented Models. This is a novel XR technology that combines physical models and projected data.  The same year, I joined the academic staff, teaching multimedia production, virtual reality and research methods at Masters level. 

My research focuses on user interaction, with a particular interest in Augmented and Virtual Reality, Computer Games, Computer Animation, and physical interaction technologies for museums, libraries and other heritage organisations.  I have supervised 20 PhD students to successful completion in areas, such as VR, AR, Sematic Metadata, Game Design, Character Animation and Computer Vision, all with a focus on User Experience Design.  I am a Member of the British Computing Society and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
