Mr Mark McGill
- Research Associate (Computing Science)
I'm a Research Associate in the Multimodal Interaction Group, lead by Professor Stephen Brewster as part of GIST in the School of Computing Science. My interests are in Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) and shared collocated/at-a-distance displays. My recent research has looked at VR/AR workspaces, VR usage in-car to understand the role visual cues of motion play in motion sickness, telepresence and using mixed reality headsets to share experiences at-a-distance, and expanded virtual spaces through translational gain. My work has involved both industry partners (Logitech and Bang & Olufsen) and a number of EPSRC projects, most recently VET (Virtual Errands Task). Broadly, I'm interested in the future role of VR and AR headsets for both productivity, communication and entertainment.
