Our research covers three broad themes: software engineering, virtual worlds and human computer interactions. The theme of interaction between people and the computer is in turn broken down into four research areas: interactive systems, special needs, multimedia education and community informatics. These areas work together to investigate the effects that computer technology has on the activities and behaviour of individuals, groups and communities.
