Mr Daniel Hodgson

Senior Lecturer

Department: Computer and Information Sciences

Daniel joined the teaching staff of Northumbria University in 1997 and is currently studying for a PhD in Game Design.

My first degree was in Electroacoustics at Salford University. It was OK, but not really what I imagined it to be and since jobs in acoustics are few and far between, I decided to do an MSc in Computing at Northumbria University, which I enjoyed much more.

I then joined the teaching staff here in 1997 and am currently studying for a PhD in Game Design. I enjoy my job and most like teaching and the contact with students, although I also really enjoy talking to games companies.

Away from work, my hobbies include church, music and, unsurprisingly, computer games.
