Mr Dick Williams

Research Interests

In a former life I was a History teacher who developed an interest in computing. I wrote several computer simulations and exercises for History teaching. I was a principal author of the History Association pamphlet, The New History and the New Technology, 1986.  

I took an MSc in Computing at Essex and then worked for seven years as an analyst programmer for Computer Foundations, a supplier of custom software to the Construction and related industries. I returned to the University as a Research Officer and worked on projects in Machine Discovery and Constraint Satisfaction. The applications were written in Visual C++ and this led to me teaching external, and later internal, students VC++ and Windows Programming.
As a Computer Officer I was working in the areas of Web Development, investigating various technologies for Web Programming. More recently, I have become a Senior Teaching Fellow.
