Experience & Interests

I have worked in various fields of Electronics Engineering for 34 years, and I have worked in technology R&D for broadcast and media since 1996, mainly focused on VR-related technologies. The teaching element of my role at the University of Worcester is on Software Engineering and Game Design/Development. In both of these areas I employ a values-based approach to problem-based learning, drawing on my industrial experience to provide meaningful real-world examples. Much of my work at the BBC was focused on AR, VR, and cutting-edge video formats in TV/Movie production applications. Although I remain interested in media and arts applications, my remit has broadened to include applications related to health and physical activity.

Alongside this, I have pursued my interests in hypnosis, meditation, and internal martial arts for over 20 years, and I now teach and practice Taijiquan, Qigong, and Meditation. I also offer coaching/consultancy services to support workplace wellbeing, drawing on this knowledge in conjunction with modern technologies that support wellbeing in the workplace.

Recent Work

  • Course Development. I lead the team on design and delivery of advanced OO design & programming modules at levels 5 and 6, which employ Java, C#, and C++ in a problem-based approach, covering basic principles through to advanced design patterns. I received a number of Studentsí Choice Awards nominations since 2014 for innovative modules and teaching.
  • Personal Academic Tutoring. As a part of my role at University of Worcester, I provide academic tutoring and coaching to 50+ students on a day-day basis.
  • Virtual and Augmented Reality. Ongoing work at the University of Worcester on use of modern VR, motion capture, and other sensor technology for health and physical activity applications.
  • HDR Video. My work on this began through a secondment to Bristol Immersive Technology Lab (a BBC/University of Bristol collaboration), where I explored workflows for capture/production/display of HDR video content.
  • Over 20 publications on graphics, motion capture, video, image, and audio related technologies.
