Profile

Helen's research is in the field of computer graphics and virtual environments. She has a BSc (2010) and PhD (2014) in Computer Science from Bangor University. She moved to Aberystwyth in 2014 to work as PDRA on the HeritageTogether project, collecting 3D digital recordings of neolithic archeology sites in Wales.

Helen is very interested in engaging with the public and communicating science, helping to plan and run outreach activities that aim to spark an interest in science and computer science. She helps run the Aberystwyth Robotic Club, leading the intermediate group.

Helen is a member of the BCS, and is on the committees for BCSWomen and BCS Mid Wales. In 2017 Helen became chair of the BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium, an annual conference for undergraduate women in computing.
