"It represents a welcome acknowledgement and recognition by the University of the work that Paul and I have done in building an international reputation for the creation of ground-breaking and world-leading mobile applications that have received awards for their research contribution, plaudits from businesses for their innovation, and, as Forum Nokia Champions, personal recognition from the industry leader for our status as leaders and innovators."
He also highlighted the close relationship between teaching, research and industry.
"The teaching prize specifically recognises the close relationship between teaching, research publications and industry and provides an important recognition by the University that one can maintain a balance between working with industry, producing academic publications, and providing a high quality education to students."
