My weekly Office Hour is Thursday 11:05 - 12:00 during Term 1 (2 October - 11 December 2017). Please email me ahead of time to confirm a meeting slot.
I am interested in human interaction & perception in virtual environments, advanced interfaces (BCI, Bio-affective), human - cognitive agent interaction, simulation and prediction of behaviour with large scale multi-agent systems, telemedicine, gamification and serious games.
I have 80+ peer reviewed publications, below those published in the last three years.
