Hi, I'm an Honorary Reader in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Manchester. Having worked at the University since 1983 and been Director of Undergraduate Studies (Computer Science) from 2011-2019, I took early retirement in 2020.
My academic field is computer graphics (projects|publications) although I am a general-purpose geek. These days I enjoy fiddling about with generative computer arty things and creative coding and trying to learn new tech every day.
From 2008 to 2018 I was proud to establish and lead the team running the annual UK Schools Computer Animation Competition.
I like photography (flickr|license my stuff), guitars, generative music, cooking, crosswords, 日本語, old films (especially British B-movies), recreational maths, reading, pondering, writing, walking, prog rock, dogs.
