During the internship, Marc also worked on a mobile version the study, in hopes of being able to build on his dissertation research. The results of both studies will hopefully be disseminated within the following year.
  • From September 2021 to April 2022, Marc completed his undergraduate dissertation research on mobile interactions in AR displays, under the supervision of Dr. Mark McGill.The research involved a virtual reality (VR) participant experiment which took place in March 2022. The dissertation was awarded a mark of A2, and some of the ideas presented in the future work section were built upon by the multimodal interaction research group (MIG) at the University of Glasgow.
  • From June 2021 to September 2021, Marc worked as an intern with the viajero project, which aims to improve all passenger journeys by facilitating the use of immersive Virtual and Augmented Reality. During this time Marc ran a user study on mitigating motion sickness using visual motion cues.
