I am a senior researcher at the University of Nottingham, UK. I’m part of the Mixed Reality Lab, and can usually be found either there, or in C15 in the Computer Science building.

I do research relating to the use of the whole body in interaction with computers. A lot of the time this involves building systems to test out ideas, and studying how these systems work in real world settings with users. For example I have been involved in building computerised fairground rides, several physical game systems, and presenting work as live performances.

See the projects section for a thematic breakdown of work I have done.

Research Funding

2014-2019 Living with Digital Ubiquity: – Named researcher on EPSRC Platform Grant (EP/M000877/1, £1.25 million)

2012-2015 Interaction in motion: 3 year Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship to study the design of mobile devices and software for active use during a wide range of movement activities, from walking in the street, to extreme sports performed in harsh environments.

I have been a named researcher on several projects funded by Horizon Digital Economy Research (RCUK):

2012 Nissan Thrill Laboratory: 9 month project funded by Horizon & Nissan, studying the thrill of driving, and presentation of this study as a promotional campaign for the new Nissan Juke vehicle.

2011-2012: Vicarious: 2 year project funded by Horizon which studied the use of physiological data in television production. I was a lead developer for a software architecture which is used in this project to integrate physiological sensing data from a range of sources with video.

2009-2011: Day in the Park: 2 year project funded by Horizon in which we studied theme park visiting and theme park rides. As part of this project, I led the creation and study of an interactive breathing controlled Bucking Bronco ride.
