Staff Profile Overview

​Glenn joined Cardiff Metropolitan University in 2017 as a Senior Lecturer in Computer Games Development. He began lecturing at Swansea Institute of Higher Education (later Swansea Metropolitan University) in 2006 and became a Senior Lecturer after the merger with the University of Wales Trinity St Davids in 2015. He completed his PGCE in 2010 and a Postgraduate Diploma in Post Compulsory Education and Training in 2014. His academic interests are programming, software design and game design patterns along with Linux and open source software.

Teaching

​Glenn teaches a number of modules on the BSc Games Design and Development program and supervises a number of undergraduate research projects each year.

Research

​Glenn completed his PhD in 2008 studying the application of machine learning to the modelling of anatomical joints and this remains the focus of his research. His research interests also include the pedagogy of programming and the development and support of academic literacy in Higher Education.
