I am a computational geographer with research interests in urban modelling and simulation, data visualisation, complexity science, serious games and GIS. Before joining Swansea University, I gained a PhD from University College London and a BEng Computing degree from Imperial College. My research findings appear in a wide variety of journals including IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, Transactions in GIS and Geographical Analysis. I recently published a book entitled Explorations in Urban and Regional Dynamics covering the latest developments in dynamic urban modelling.
