Very briefly, my research focuses on the design and evaluation of interactive systems that help people with special needs, including older persons and people with disabilities, and more recently children. Details of my publications and funded grants are in the Research page.Oh, I am very excited that we will be purchasing a CAVE through the NSF MRI that we were recently awarded.
Details of courses I am teaching and some past teaching awards are in the Teaching page.
I lumped together my involvement in panels, the talks and keynote speeches I was invited to, and other research community activities in the Scholarly Activities page.
Information for prospective graduate students
Finally, my core research interests are listed under the page aptly named For research students. I also list the work the PhD candidates (some had graduated) I worked with as examples of the sort of things I am interested in. Because I was in the UK, MSc projects are slightly differently structured and it would be too much to list the 50+ something MSc projects I supervised.
