I am a senior lecturer (equivalent to associate professor in North American universities) at the School of Computer Science, University of Adelaide

Toward the goal of augmenting human, my primary research themes are augmenting human creativity and augmenting human-machine interface. I am particularly interested in creating novel interaction systems by integrating brain-computer interface (BCI) and mixed-reality (MR) displays. 

I am always looking for talented students interested in VR and AR. The scholarship from The University of Aadelaide can be found here. I will advertise positions tied to my own funding when available.
