Dr Andrew James (Jamie) Wood

University of York.

I am an interdisciplinary researcher at the University of York. My background is in Mathematical Physics but my interests are now in applying computational and mathematical techniques to interesting problems, mostly in Biology. This includes such topics as collective motion (particularly in interaction networks and the role of noise) and microbiology (particularly in metabolism, industrial biotechnology, spatial structure and plasmid dynamics) as well as modelling naval conflicts and glycosylation. I have a natural interest in games and am interested in the interface between games and science, be that in using games to do, or disseminate, science or in utilising mechanisms and insights from research to inspire games.

Research themes:

  • Game Analytics
  • Game Design
  • Games with a Purpose
  • Gamification
