Profile Summary
His main research interests are in creating and using virtual environments for task management, building construction, engineering maintenance and 3D query languages. Dr Murray¿s research career has always been in the field of virtual environments. At Salford his research has been focused in the development of interactive virtual environments within the construction and engineering domains. This research begun with the development of a geometric constraint detection and management system, that was initially used in a construction project. This was developed alongside a toolkit for developing interactive virtual environments to create an environment for building construction design and review for the FutureHome project. This work was extended and applied to the engineering domain with the development of more advanced interactive, immersive interfaces and with the extension of the system for maintenance analysis and the automatic creation of disassembly sequences of engineering models. Recently Dr Murray has been investigating eye gaze within collaborative virtual environments. More information on the work can be found on my main web page
