Lecturer

Faculty and Department

  • Faculty of Science and Engineering
  • Department of Computer Science and Technology

Summary

David Parker thinks that referring to himself in the third person is weird outside of the context of formal paper writing. It reminds him of a great sketch by Mitchell and Webb about Caesar. Am I Caesar?

I have been lecturing at the University of Hull, in the Department of Computer Science and Technology, since 2011. I love using software to solve problems.

Undergraduate

I am currently responsible for the following modules:

2D Computer Graphics and Simulation (level 5)

Mobile Devices and their Applications (level 6)

Group Development Project (Level 7)

I am also the caretaker a bunch of extra-curricular activities such as game jams and programming competitions including the magnificent Three Thing Game (https://threethinggame.com) and a local site for the Global Game Jam.

Research interests

I am a member of the Dependable and Intelligent Systems research group in the Department of Computer Science and Technology.

As part of my research in to safety-critical systems I am a co-inventor of HiP-HOPS, a state-of-the-art model-based safety and dependability analysis and optimisation tool.

I am particularly interested in the use of meta-heuristic optimisation algorithms to improve characteristics of safety-critical systems.
