Hi, My name is Chris! 057

I am a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Lincoln, where I am a member of the HCI (IntLab) group. I am also the current programme leader for Games Computing.

After graduating in 2009 with a degree in education and design, I formed Ogwen Publishing with a friend; this company specialises in bespoke web systems and applications that continues to be one of the leading providers in North Wales. Through this enterprise I have been involved in a large range of projects working with local businesses, International PLC’s and the European Government.

Two years later in 2011 I was hired as a lecturer by Coleg Harlech and took a leading role in redeveloping the Creative Technologies course. I was also responsible for the design of an online photography courses for the community, and investigating the use of social media for teaching. This lead to further recognition in international media as the first person in to teach an further education course in its entirety through facebook.

In 2012 I undertook a Masters in Computer Science, which which I graduated with distinction in July 2014, having published 3 papers of novel research. After completing my masters I began a PhD in The Simulation of Ethical Behaviour at Bangor University, funded by HPC Wales and Fujitsu. As well as undertaking my research I was lead for 4 modules, teaching at all levels from first years to masters students. I also helped form a virtual reality company (Picselica).

In 2016 I joined the Computer Science department at the University of Lincoln. I currently teach on the Advanced Games Studies, Web Authoring, Games Design, and Professional Practice modules.
