Research interests
I am interested in how to support people who want to carry out concurrent tasks in real and virtual environments. To achieve this I am looking at ways of producing represenations of people which have a degree of autonomy. The work forms part of a part time Ph.D which I am studying for at Nottingham University.

Current project

I am learning the character behaviour modelling details of the Alive system at the moment. I then hope to build a graphical user interface to allow the behaviour patterns of the character to be modified at run-time.
