Marc Conrad


Dr Marc Conrad is Principal Lecturer for Computing and Information Systems at the University of Bedfordshire. He worked on a number of research projects, many of those cross-disciplinary with Mathematics, Psychology, Sociology, Engineering and Education. Since 2006 he teaches Information Technology Project Management, both undergraduate and postgraduate and experiments with various teaching approaches including the use of virtual realities. He is proficient in full stack software development and is an experienced Java programmer.

As of February 2020, he has supervised thirteen PhD students to completion. Marc Conrad has authored and co-authored more than seventy peer-reviewed publications in addition to various other publications on the World Wide Web (see below). As part of his research activities he developed a trust propagation model for multi-client systems and a framework for the evaluation of virtual worlds in educational context. He had a major role in a joint project with Bedfordshire Police on cyberharrasment and contributed to the EDISON project, an EU funded initiative to build the Data Science profession.

Marc Conrad is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academic; and member of the BCS, The Chartered Instituted of IT; Institute of Mathematics and its Applications and the Croatian Mathematical Society.
