I'm a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Swansea University, Sêr Cymru II Fellow, and Founding Director of Pill Bug Interactive.
My research background is primarily in using evolutionary optimisation technqiues to solve real problems. Examples include optimising meshes for fluid simulation solvers, designing hypersonic rentry vehicles and helping level designers create content for video games. I am also interested in understanding where technology can be used to support education, being led by educational needs rather than 'cool' technology.
I'm also one half of Pill Bug Interactive, an indie games company based in Wales. We've released two games; Intelligent Design: An Evolutionary Sandbox and Cycle 28 (Which was nominated for a BAFTA Cymru Award in 2019). We are currently hard at work on our next title Making it Home.
