Specialist in Creative Technologies

Where Art Meets Science

Creative Technologies is a multi-disciplinary field which can be used in every sphere of modern digital life, including learning, communication, visualisation, digital art and data exploration. A major component of Creative Technologies is Interaction: Technology that provides a human-computer interface whereby the digital device responds to the user and vice-versa. This requires many associated technologies including graphics, body tracking, display devices, computer vision and artificial intelligence.

My research focus is on Serious Games. Serious Games are used to measure and record users actions and behaviours during specially designed tasks. Data can include not only records of decision making in specific situations, but also eye-tracking data and psychophysiology. Check out my portfolio/research sections for examples.
