Dale is interested in human-computer interaction, particularly the applied use of technology to assist us in understanding and functioning in real world tasks.
Dale’s background in computer science, bio-medical science and creative design provides him with an ideal set of skills to design and build assistive systems and interfaces. He has led the development of innovative interfaces/systems for dementia, diabetes and positive psychology (Happiness) as well as visualisation and interaction techniques for virtual/augmented reality and game based systems.
Dale applies creative techniques to the use of technology based tools, to design new methods of human-machine interaction. He has worked extensively in education and commercially, focusing on 3D computer graphics and interactive interfaces. His work explores exiting new opportunities for the applied use of play to help us engage more effectively with technology.
