About

I’m Dr Tom Crick, currently a Senior Lecturer in Computing Science and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Computing & Information Systems at Cardiff Metropolitan University, having previously spent a number of years in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath. I’m a 2014 HEA National Teaching Fellow.

My research (see publications) is naturally interdisciplinary: optimisation, high performance computing, intelligent systems, data science, analytics and reproducibility. I’m the Nesta Data Science Fellow, with a specific interest in using data science and analytics to inform and shape public policy. I’m also a member of HiPEAC, the European Network of Excellence on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation and a 2014 Software Sustainability Institute Fellow.

I’ve been part of the movement to transform computing education in the UK: I’m Chair in Wales (and Board Member) of Computing At School (CAS), an organisation with more than 15,000 members. In September 2013, I co-chaired the Welsh Government’s review of the ICT curriculum in Wales and was a member of the UK Digital Skills Taskforce.
