My teaching focuses the development of software, I teach mostly programming and software design though I also teach specialised modules related to computer games, real-time systems and operating systems programming.

Year 1 Modules

  • Introduction to Programming (BSc Computer Games Development, BSc Software Engineering and HND Software Engineering).

Year 2 Modules

  • Software Engineering Principles (BSc Computer Games Development, BSc Software Engineering and HND Software Engineering).
  • Games Content Engineering (BSc Computer Games Development).
  • System Software and Multi-User Application Engineering (BSc Software Engineering and HND Software Engineering).

Year 3 Modules

  • System Software and Multi-User Application Engineering (BSc Software Engineering)

My research interests include modelling and simulation of anatomical joints and pedagogical research related to my teaching. I am currently interested in the application of machine learning to the modelling of anatomical joint constraint.

I have also undertaken research into the teaching of computer programming, including the use of Pair Programming and Code Reviews to support first year programmers. I am also interested in the support academic writing with tools and methodologies inspired by software development.
