Biography

I'm a Research Fellow in the Multimodal Interaction Group on the ViAjeRo project ( https://viajero-project.org/ ), 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. Broadly, I'm interested in the future role of VR and AR headsets for productivity, communication and entertainment. 

Research interests

Previous research includes:

  • Virtual workspaces (ToCHI 2020)
  • Co-located Mixed Reality (VRST 2020)
  • Auditory Mixed Reality (CHI 2019, IMX 2020)
  • In-Car VR HMD usage (CHI 2017)
  • Synchronous At-a-distance TV and VR (TOCHI 2016)
  • VR Usability (CHI 2015)
  • Multi-User TV (TVX2014/15)

Previous projects:

  • HAPPINESS - EU project on in-car haptics
  • Logitech - VR/AR research
  • VET - Virtual errands task, examining how to create VR simulations of existing real world tasks that might benefit people with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
  • PhD on TV and VR displays
