PhD Thesis and Interact 2015

I haven’t updated my website in months, mostly because I’ve been focusing on finishing my PhD research. In May I started writing my thesis and I’m now approaching the end of it. With 60,000 words written and my first draft almost complete, I am almost there. It’s been an exciting couple of months writing that up and I’m looking forward to finishing. Not because I haven’t enjoyed it, but because it’s the most substantial piece of work I’ve ever undertaken and it’s exciting seeing it all come together into a single piece of writing.

Not much else has happened in that time, although I did get two submissions accepted to Interact 2015: a poster [1] and a demo [2]. Both describe interactive light feedback, something which has featured a lot in my recent PhD research. I describe interactive light feedback in more detail here. Interact is in Bamberg in Germany, this year, which I’m excited about visiting! Nearer to the time (mid-September) I’ll show more photos and maybe a video of the demo I’ll be giving at the conference.
