Breif bit about me

I’m currently undertaking a Ph.D. researching Virtual Reality. I am also an Associate Lecturer at the University of the West of Scotland (UWS).

My Ph.D. research topic is Virtual Reality Gamification of Computer Science teaching and learning and I am due to complete it in September 2022. 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 this led me on to my further two studies that look more at the use of VR games within education.

3 years as an Associate Lecturer at UWS, I have taught the 2nd and 3rd year BSc Computer development students undertaking the Game Engine 1 & 2 modules with the responsibility of writing and delivering lectures, support sessions and tutorials, assessments, grades, and feedback. I have also delivered modules for the BSc Animation Arts degree, such as the Professional Portfolio Production module to the 4th-year students and the Visual Effects module to the 3rd-year cohort. 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 continue to undertake freelance digital artwork outside my education and UWS teaching duties, this work has seen me involved with Virtual Reality educational games, board games, animation, and visual effects projects. 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)
