About Chris Headleand
I am a Senior Lecturer in the school of Computer Science, and the Programme Leader for the Games Computing degree programme. I am also attached to the IntLab/HCI research group and my research interests include Virtual Reality, Artificial Inteligence, and Ethics, specifically related to gaming applications.
Since graduating in 2009, I have managed two successful enterprises. Through these companies I have been involved in a large number of industrial projects working with a range of local businesses and large International PLC’s. I have significant experience of commercial virtual reality development, and have negotiated various international contracts and agreements within the computing sector.
I hold a PhD in Computer Science from Bangor University.
I currently teach on the following modules:
Games Design 2,
Procedural Content Generation,
I am also currently acting as the deputy program leader for Computer Science.
