Breif bit about me

Digital Artist & Immersive Tech Specialist | PhD in Computer Science | KTP associate with UWS Creative Computing Technologies | Shaping the Future of Immersive Tech at Smartify.

My Ph.D. research topic is Virtual Reality Gamification of Computer Science teaching and learning that I completed in 2023. My research looks at the use of immersive visual and audio stimuli with simple gamification techniques, to better convey basic programming concepts before their translation into written instructions.
I have published in Springers Lecture Notes in Computer Science and ACM: : Proceedings of the 2023 8th International Conference on Information and Education Innovations.

4 years as an Associate Lecturer at UWS, I have taught the 2nd, 3rd & 4th year BSc Creative Computing students undertaking the Games Development, Computer Animation and Visulisation modules with the responsibility of writing and delivering lectures, support sessions and tutorials, assessments, grades, and feedback. Plus, I have assisted on a number of other modules within the creative computing department while teaching my own modules and researching for my Ph.D.

I am currently working as a KTP associate with Smartify and UWS CCT building inovative XR solutions to drive the medium forward within the cultural heritage sector.

One of which has received a BAFTA Scotland award. I have been involved in beta testing a number of virtual reality games.

“Hey Ray,
great work!
The VFX scenes are really good now.
Grading of balloon and the movement connection between balloon and Lazlo is great.
The character is well keyed. I will have to watch the beginning of the shot in slow motion to see if the movement of the ship reads well while he lands.”  – Sven Werner (Director)
