Between Jan 2008 and Feb 2011 I worked at Istituto Italian di Tecnologia (IIT) in a collaborative PhD position between IIT and Bangor University, Wales under the supervision of both Professor Nigel W John (Bangor) and Professor Darwin G Caldwell (IIT). The focus of my research was the use of augmented reality to produce immersive visio-haptic medical training environments. During my PhD I developed an immersive environment called PalpSim which underwent content and face validation at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. My freely available PhD thesis “Investigating Augmented Reality Visio-Haptic Techniques for Medical Training” can be found on the Eurographics website here.
