My research is based in the field of Computer Graphics, specifically in perceptually guided graphics. I am interested in creating plausible virtual humans and groups. My most recent research is part of SFI funded project CAPTAVATAR (under the supervision of Prof. Carol O'Sullivan), which aims to investigate those properties which make a virtual character engaging. I have previously worked on EU FP7 and SFI projects, also focused on creating virtual agents/crowds for serious games and realistic virtual environments.


Team Computing (Robotics)  DT211-1 BSc in Computing.

Previous teaching responsibilities have included: Client-Side Development, Mobile App Development and Quantitive Methods. I also coordinated a project module for undergraduate students and supervised a number of MSc theses (Cloud Computing and Web Technology).


I have a BEng in Electronic Engineering from NUI Maynooth, and a MSc in Cognitive Science from UCD. I received my PhD from Trinity College Dublin in April 2011, under the supervision of Prof. Carol O'Sullivan.
