He has authored one book and many papers, and has been grant-holder for a range of awards. He is currently also Chief Investigator for the TANDEM trial, a large scale clinical trial looking at the use of Avastin in age related macular degeneration.
His particular interests are the uses of VR in the transport and healthcare domains. He is currently involved in a number of research projects including I-BiT™, ManuVAR, and CoSpatial, as well as providing technical advice and support for all of the group’s projects. He also provides supervision for PhD students and MSc research and experimental work.
He started his academic life at Hull in the department of Applied Physics with a degree and then Ph.D. in magnetic materials. This was then followed by a move over the Pennines to work in Manchester and Bolton, teaching electronics and developing medical instrumentation and imaging software. He then returned to Hull and and spent much of his time developing and delivering courses in games related subjects, whilst keeping an active research interest in medical signal processing and instrumentation. His next move was to the University of Bradford where he was Head of Mathematics in the School of Computing, Informatics and Media. He has now returned to Hull where he has taken the role of HIVE Manager.
Annie is a principal investigator for this project at the Royal Stoke Hospital, Stoke-on-Trent.
His work on the use of games to help in theraputic treatments has led to involvement with the formation of the MindTech Helthcare Technology Co-operative which involves input from the University of Nottingham Institute for Mental Health in collaboration with others in Computer Science, Engineering, SMEs and the Public and Patient groups.
She also worked as a lecturer and programme leader for the Foundation Degree in Ophthalmic Science & Technology Course at Castle College, Nottingham and recently obtained her Post Graduate Certificate in Education from Nottingham Trent University.
