I am a Professor of Virtual Reality at Goldsmiths, University of London, where I co-lead the Goldsmiths Computing MA/MSc in Virtual and Augmented Reality, and the SeeVR Lab. My Coursera VR Specialisation has over 100,000 registered learners internationally. My research interest lies in the area of Virtual Reality technology and its applications in the areas of social neuroscience, psychology, training, and therapy.

I received my PhD in Virtual Reality in 2009, at UCL, with Professor Mel Slater. It was fully funded by EPSRC and the Rabin Ezra Scholarship. I have an MSc in Vision, Imaging, and Virtual Environments (VIVE) from UCL 2004-5.
