I am an Associate Professor at the University of Central Lancashire — Cyprus where I am the Head of the School of Sciences, an interdisciplinary team of academics working in computer science, engineering, mathematics, psychology, sports & exercise science, and media.

My research focuses on Mobile and Distributed Systems in the wider area of Software Engineering. I also study applications of Gamification as a means for behaviour change, and topics in Computer Science Education especially in the context of Code Cyprus.
