Andy Thomason

Andy Thomason teaches the MSc in Computer Games & Entertainment at Goldsmiths, University of London. He has worked in games and graphics since the  1970s and has recently left Sony Computer Entertainment (where he developed the compilers for the Playstation) to concentrate on academic work.

Recently he has been working with Imperial college on the Bioblox project visualising protein docking and at Kings on a website visualising gene expression in brain cells.

He has shifted his teaching focus to server-based visualisation fronted by WegGL enabled web pages, which allows much more complex animated visualisations to be created than in JavaScript alone.
