My research interest is in understanding and applying  'human factors and human-related phenomena' (such as attention, perception, vision, inattention blindness, change blindness) to the design of computer systems in various application areas (for e.g. automotive UI, mobile applications, intelligent transport systems, driver distraction, visual attention/perception and virtual reality).

My aim is to formulate new theories based on a sound understanding of human perception and attention in technology mediated environments (virtual reality, augmented reality, mobile, automotive) that would guide the design of the system architecture, UI & interaction to create efficient systems, effective interfaces and satisfying user experiences.

While my initial curiosity and drive has roots in virtual reality, over time the application areas of my research have expanded to mobile, connected car and intelligent transport systems (ITS) applications.

I have several active collaborative links with the industry in the UK and across Europe.
