    About Patrick Dickinson

    After completing my MSc in 1995, I worked as a programmer in the computer games industry until 2002. I was employed at Rebellion Developments in Oxford, and then at Awesome Developments Ltd, and has worked on the following published game titles: Aliens Vs Predator (PC, 2000), Jimmy White’s 2: Cueball (1999, PC, Playstation), Jimmy White’s Cueball World (2002, PC, Dreamcast). I returned to academia in 2004, and studied full time for my PhD in computer vision at the University of Lincoln (supervisor, Prof. Andrew Hunter). After briefly working as an RA at Loughborough University, I returned to Lincoln as a lecturer in 2008. I currently teach on the BSc Games Computing programme at Lincoln, and am actively researching in the areas of computer vision, computer games, and indoor navigation.
