I am currently a senior research professor at the University of Chester. From 2003 until 2015 I held a chair in computing within the School of Computer Science at Bangor University. I established research activities at Bangor in visualization and medical graphics in 2003, and led a dynamic group of researchers active in this field. Prior to this I was in charge of the Manchester Visualization Centre at the University of Manchester for five years.

     I have also worked in industry for Silicon Graphics Inc. and Zeneca Pharmaceuticals.

I was a Director of the Wales Research Institute of Visual Computing (RIVIC), and the NISCHR funded Advanced Medical Imaging and Visualization Unit.

In 2006 I was awarded the 12th annual Satava Award to acknowledge my accomplishments in the field of computer graphics and medical visualization.

In 2009 I was elected as a Fellow of the Eurographics Association (FEG).

In 2013 I was awarded a Churchill Travelling Fellowship. Read more about the Fellowship.

In 2014 I was elected as a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales (FLSW).

Interests

My primary research interests are in the application of computer graphics, haptics, and virtual environments to medical applications. Read about some of my projects in the Research section of this web page.

I am a keen supporter of the Wales rugby union team and the Ospreys regional team. A simulator to train rugby skills was one of my favourite projects! Other interests include cycling, pinball, snooker, kite flying and science fiction.
