  • Programme management, development, administration and admissions
  • Undergraduate/postgraduate teaching and supervision (HND, BSc, MSc and PhD)
  • Academic partnership management and oversight
  • Research
  • Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA)
  • STEM Ambassador

I have a diverse range of largely computing-oriented interests, including:

  • Parallel, Distributed and High Performance Computing
  • Programming and code optimisation
  • Clustering
  • Scientific computing

 

 

  • Parallelism through threading, MPI and GPGPU, with a particular interest in dynamic growth and mixed-mode parallelism models
  • Current research is focused on developing an optimal model for light-tissue interaction and thermal transport for arbitrary geometry
  • Pedagogy, especially motivation and gamification theory
  • Currently involved in research supervision for ASTUTE 2020
  • Previously consulted on a HPC Wales grant
