Together with my team, I work on research projects around cross-device computing, mixed/augmented reality and physical computing. I supervise students on BSc, MSc and PhD level. Please get in touch if you are looking for a supervisor for your BSc./MSc. project at Lancaster University. We regularly have openings for internships and PhD positions.
