Personal profile

Research interests

Multi-dimensional defines my twenty-year academic career as an Associate Professor of Information and Computing Sciences where I coordinate the Mixed Reality Research Lab (www.mixedrealityresearch.com). My research spans computer science and visual arts, with an emphasis on applied design and development of interactive mixed reality (virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), 3d printing, mobile) experiences and visualisations assisting communication, learning, skills acquisition and knowledge discovery. I have published in top quality journals/conferences and received multiple national and institutional grants. I also take an active role in supporting learners and peers through mentorship, presentations and expert judging.

Statement for HDR students

I am looking for like-minded students that have a passion for learning and technology. Someone that can challenge themselves, and me, in their pursuit for higher degree learning. If you have an interest in projects related to mixed reality (VR/AR), educational technology, interactive multimedia systems and visualisation please contact me and we can discuss potential project ideas.
