Research title

Supporting and Rehabilitating Anxiety Disorders using Interactive Systems

Research summary

My research is focussed on supporting individuals with Social Anxiety Disorder(SAD) as they attempt face-to-face(FTF) interaction and rehabilitation. I am approaching this from a Human Computer Interaction(HCI) perspective, designing and developing interactive systems and then evaluating them, all alongside users. I am currently conducting a literature review of how individuals with SAD habitually interact with FTF interactions, interactive systems and how HCI research has tried to previously provide support.
