University

PhD – Computing – pending
University of the West of Scotland

I am writing-up my PhD thesis in my spare time. My research topic explores the usability issues of integrating web-based e-learning systems with immersive virtual worlds.

BSc. Hons 1st Class – Computer Games Technology
University of Paisley / the West of Scotland, 2007

I thoroughly enjoyed this 4-year course as it gave me an opportunity to learn a great deal about the technical aspects of games programming, while also offering the freedom to explore various related fields. Topics studied included C++, maths, parallelism, artificial intelligence, 3d graphics, animation, software testing, and management.

I was awarded the University Court Medal for Distinguished Academic Performance on 3 consecutive years of the degree.
