I studied Computer Games Development MComp at the University of South Wales. When I finished my degree, I got an internship at Airbus working on internal communications software using future technologies. Now I am working on my PhD looking at how people respond to moral dilemmas in virtual reality with my supervisor Mel Slater. My research is focused on people’s real time decision making process when faced with a moral dilemma as well as how social aspects such as compliance and conformity can affect this decision using virtual reality as a tool to simulate such scenarios.

Primary Supervisor: Prof Melvyn Slater
