Dr Richard Hetherington BSc(Hons), MSc, PhD, PGCert, FHEA



Until the year 2000 I had pursued a successful research career in the area of Plant Science undertaken in various universities and also in association with industry (Plant Biotechnology). This led to a number of successful publications which can be found on my Researchgate profile (

From 2000 onwards I changed my career direction and completed an MSc in Software Technology (Distinction) at Edinburgh Napier University with an interest in HCI, and became a lecturer shortly after that where my role was in Teaching and Programme Administration (both home and overseas in Malaysia). After a 15-year forced break in research I am now publishing articles in the areas of HCI, computer animation and digital make-believe.
