About Me

David (BA, BSc, MSc, PhD) is a Lecturer and Dundee Fellow within Computing at the University of Dundee. David leads the DAPRlab (Digitally-Augmented Perception Research lab) research group which combines sensors and wearables to enhance the day-to-day perceptual abilities of everyone - both people with impaired sensory capabilities as well as those with typical abilities. Current DAPRlab projects include developing visualizations to improve speech reading and to enhance intercultural non-verbal communication. David's personal research focusses on helping people with impaired colour vision. Within Computing at the University of Dundee, David co-teaches AC32005 (HCI) and teaches the 'Exploring Colour Vision Deficiency' component of the AC42001 Research Frontiers module. David also supervises a number of PhD, MSc, and Honours students, but is always looking for new 'DAPRlabbers'.
