Profile Summary

I develop and study the use immersive VR and telepresence technologies that encourage people to collaborate within mixed reality simulation as they would in the real world. For the last three years I have refocused much of this research to the application of mental health. Current key interests are: immersive neuroimiging, shared VR exposure therapy, use of virtual humans and avatars in mental health, immersive and telepresence displays that fit, or can be warn in, everyday places and interactions.
