I am an Associate Professor in Computer Science and I direct the SPECTRAL (the Spatial Computing Education, Training, and Research Lab and co-direct the Human-Computer Interaction Lab, at the University of New Brunswick, in Fredericton, Canada. My research focuses on enabling people to work and play together in new ways, so that we can learn from each other and lead healthier, happier lives. My group’s work has included research into mixed reality, game design, computer supported cooperative work, novel interactions, visualization, and serious games for learning and health.
My work is highly collaborative and we work with researchers from other institutions, and look for opportunities to collaborate with industry and health clinicians whenever possible to deepen our work and to share our experience.
I joined UNB in 2015, after 2.5 years at the University of Prince Edward Island. I received a PhD and Master’s in Computer Science from the University of Saskatchewan, and have worked as a researcher with Microsoft Research, IBM Watson Research, the University of Calgary and the National College of Ireland.
