I am involved mainly in teaching and conducting research in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and belong
to the Glasgow Interactive Systems
Group (GIST). In particular, a small group of us belong to the Multimodal
Interaction Group (MIG) and we specialise in studying how using our
multiple human senses (sight, hearing, touch for example) can improve the
way we interact with computers.
My PhD thesis investigated how what we feel and hear
when we touch a virtual texture can affect the way in which we will
interact with virtual objects and virtual environments. You can download my thesis in PDF format here.
I am currently involved in the MATCH project which is investigating mobile technology and interaction for health care in the home setting.
