Personal profile

Personal profile

I am currently a Lecturer in Games Production with a particular interest in applied games. I currently deliver teaching on modules in quality assurance, interaction design, and awareness of the creative industries. I also supervise and mentor many applied game-based projects including Boccia Champions, which was awarded a Bronze Award at the Serious Play Conference 2019.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Game Design and Production Management at Abertay University. Following that, I achieved my PhD in applied game design from Glasgow Caledonian University.

More information about my work and experience can be found on my website.

Research interests

I am interested in pursuing opportunities of research in:

  • games in applied contexts;
  • user- and person-centred design practices;
  • play and phenomenology;
  • game jams and game creation events.


Since 2016, I have been an active STEM Ambassador and volunteer for various school-based STEM activities such as public demonstrations, career presentations, and hands-on workshops related to game development. I am passionate about providing insight and advice to young people who may wish to consider a career in the games industry.
