Personal profile

Overview

Employed at UWS/Paisley University since 1990.  Involved in the teaching of a variety of courses at under-graduate and post-graduate level in science, business and engineering disciplines. Many of these courses have included some element of simulation or model-building, and they have frequently been within the context of operational research and operations management.  I have included a variety of student-centred learning techniques within these courses, such as computer-aided learning, business games and video-based case studies.

Area of academic expertise - outline

My research concerns simulation modelling. There are many different types of simulation; his experience has mainly been with Monte Carlo, Discrete Event and Agent-Based Modelling. Simulation can be used as a problem solving and decision support tool in a range of different environments. I have worked on projects in a variety of domains, from energy, engineering and manufacturing through to education, business and health. However, the use of simulation is often limited due to the perceived barriers of time, cost and difficulty. I am particularly interested in reducing some of the perceived difficulties. Improving ease of use is critical for making simulation more widely accessible.
