School of Information Systems Computing and Mathematics
I am a Reader in Computer Science in the School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics at Brunel University. I am also the Director of Postgraduate Studies in the Department of Information Systems and Computing (DISC) and manage the external postgraduate collaboration that Brunel University has with the Norwegian School of Information Technology. I carry out my research within the People and Interactivity Research Centre (PANDI)
My research activities lie at the confluence of Computer Science, Media and Psychology. In particular, my work focuses on the area of perceptual multimedia quality and how one builds end-to-end communication systems incorporating user perceptual requirements. I have applied my expertise in areas such as eye-tracking, telemedicine, multi-modal interaction, and ubiquitous and mobile computing.
I have over 100 publications in my research field and, together with Sherry Chen, have edited a book on Digital Multimedia Perception and Design. I consult regularly for both public and private institutions in my areas of expertise.
