BSc(Hons), MRes

DPhil Student

I am a DPhil (PhD) student based in the O-CAP team, supervised by Dr Aitor Rovira and Professor Daniel Freeman.

My research merges human-computer interaction and clinical psychology, focusing on creating empathetic virtual humans for virtual reality (VR) mental health therapies. By integrating psychological research, VR programming, and 3D animation, I design, implement, and evaluate VR scenarios using empirical experiments and multimodal (behavioural, psychological and physiological) data analysis. The long-term goal of my research is to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of VR applications for healthcare.
