Personal profile

Research Statement


The focus of my research is the application of tools and technologies to lead new disruptive practices and systems for many application areas.  The main application areas I work with are Health & Training and Industry & Automation.  I am particularly interested in how virtual and augmented reality technologies can be used in these areas and how they can change the future practices within such areas. I have over fifteen years’ experience working within the fields of software engineering, sensor fusion and real time software development and I have over ten years’ experience working within the areas of virtual and augmented reality and multi sensorial systems.   


My main teaching interests within the School are in the subject areas of Engineering Entrepreneurship and Virtual & Augmented Reality. 


During my research career I have been PI and CI on several national and European funded grants.  I am actively engaged with external professional bodies and I am currently a professional registration interviewer for the IET. I have been and continues to act as an expert evaluator, recorder and Vice Chair for various calls in H2020, FP7 and FP6.
